THERE, BUT NOT

In our previous articles, we said: “I wish there were vending machines in our country” We're so sorry, we missed it. It turns out there is, but we can't see it.
In our previous articles, we said: “I wish there were vending machines in our country” We’re so sorry, we missed it. It turns out there is, but we can’t see it. Let’s go over the summaries of past news like this:
“The Smart Recycling Container developed by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality as a domestic and national product was established in 6 more points. The system, which installs loans to Istanbul Kart in return for pet bottles and aluminum waste, attracts great interest from citizens and students. Work is underway to establish the container in 22 separate schools. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) is expanding the Smart Recycling Container project introduced by Mayor Mevlüt Uysal to the public in order to recycle the packaging wastes that pollute the environment.”

When we look at it, it looks like a project that came to life, there are photographs, it was mentioned a lot. In 2018. But we didn’t see it even though we traveled so much and we were at the busiest stops. Let’s look at the article of the Directorate of Waste Management of IMM:

Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Waste Management Directorate provides recycling of pet and metal bottles thanks to Smart Mobile Transfer Stations.

Where will Smart Mobile Transfer Stations be located?

The project on Smart Mobile Transfer Stations has started to be implemented as pilot work at some metro stations. In the following period, it is planned to provide the same service in primary schools and in different points that serve the public.

Currently, within the scope of the pilot study, 3 Smart Mobile Transfer Stations, 2 of which are at İTÜ Ayazağa Metro Station and 1 of which are at Şişhane Metro Station, continue to serve.
Belediye İştirakimiz İSBAK tarafından imalatı yapılan ve “Akıllı Mobil Aktarma İstasyonları” 7/24 denetim altında tutularak, istatiksel ve mekanik tepkiler kayıt altına alınıyor.

Intelligent Mobile Transfer Stations manufactured by ISBAK, our Municipality Affiliate, are kept under 7/24 supervision and statistical and mechanical responses are recorded.

The project, which addresses the whole of Istanbul, aims to raise social responsibility and environmental awareness especially for children of primary school age. Wastes collected in Smart Mobile Transfer Stations are brought to the national economy. The device, which is a national design, attracts great interest from domestic and international markets.

How much fee will be charged to Istanbul Card for which product?

Is it really that few and between 2-9 kuruş? So if the goal is to encourage the subject, it seems to be difficult in this way. It’s not even a quarter of what’s done abroad. In short, we have accepted this, we are in the summer of 2019, there is still no development, no spread on this issue. It will be a year since the announcement of the project in September and the project has not spread. What’s the point if it’s going to be at 3-5 points? And how are there 2 million Waste Collected headlines in the news? These vending machines have to be within reach of everyone at every moment.
