SnackTime Recycle Old Vending Machines and Help Create New Jobs
The SnackTime group actively uses the innovative recycling solutions of the Think3e group. Think3e is a not-for-profit social enterprise who focus on creating jobs for those most disadvantaged in the labour market, including those with no qualifications, learning difficulties or convictions, whilst allowing businesses to fulfill their corporate social responsibilities and providing a benefit to communities at large.
Think3e are specialists in vending recycling including both vending machines and commercial fridge units making them the ideal solution for the old vending machines SnackTime can no longer make use of. The vending machines are stripped of all useful parts and saved from landfill and their refrigeration units are degassed safely. Currently, SnackTime dispose of around 60 machines per year.
At the same time as prolonging the usefulness of our old vending machines, Think3e are a welfare to work provider, tackling worklessness through community focused social enterprises. They provide work for both young people and offenders, providing them with the opportunity to learn a new trade and at the same time helping to reduce reoffending rates.
