Mask recovery machine / Mask recovery machine

Mask recovery machine

In the post-epidemic era, the consumption of disposable masks is huge. The number of disposable masks used by residents and the number of disposable masks discarded by residents have increased exponentially, which is not only detrimental to the control of the epidemic, but also causes a waste of resources. Therefore, we designed a mask purchasing and recycling system. Users can get points by discarding their old masks through the mask recycling machine, which can be exchanged for new masks of special significance as rewards. In this way, the positive feedback method is conducive to recycling disposable masks of residents.
