      Shoppers have earned more than £30,000 by recycling plastic bottles in the first supermarket trial of reverse vending machines.

      The scheme, piloted by Iceland, rewards people with a voucher worth 10p for every deposit of a bottle bought at the shop.

      It was rolled out to stores in Wolverhampton, Mold, Fulham and Musselburgh – as well as Iceland’s head office, in Deeside.
