Cascais Ambiente 80px

In January 2021 ACR+ member Cascais Ambiente launched the iRec project with the installation of 15 deposit and return machines located in the Village Market and in various commercial surfaces in Cascais. Since then, the project has already made it possible to collect over 1 million beverage packages, of which 62% were PET plastic, 27% glass and 11% cans. In total, more than 100 tonnes of recyclable materials are sent for recovery, which will gain a new life instead of going to landfill. By January 2022, the iRec machines have reached over 100,000 users, which translates into 1.2 million Citypoints points awarded, which can then be exchanged for prizes.
