The Asofta recycling company is launching a pilot project in the coming days to collect bottles and cans from private homes. The company will collect any type of bottle or can that falls under the Deposit Law. The pilot project will begin in Jerusalem, Modi'in and Ariel. The company will collect a minimum of 1,000 bottles at a time, approximately one five-story building's use in a month, and will pay the total deposit fee in cash on the spot to those who collected the bottles.
