Qyos by Algramo

24/7 Refill vending machines for residential buildings

Why Refill vending machines?

On average, the Final Waste Disposal Site (TPA) in Jakarta holds around 6,000 – 7,000 tons of garbage per day, exceeding well over the actual TPA capacity of 5,000 tons per day. The average mega block of apartments and shophouses in Jakarta produces 600 cubic metres of plastic waste on a daily basis.  That’s why our venture Qyos is on a mission to combat these overwhelming amounts of waste.

How Qyos by Algramo reduces plastic waste in Indonesian households

Qyos by Algramo is a user-friendly refill vending machine that provides daily necessities to customers with the convenience of being located directly in apartment buildings. The product dispensing system eliminates single-use packaging by providing reusable containers that can be rented and refilled with mass consumables, household items, and personal hygiene products, such as hand sanitizer, dishwashing detergent, and shampoo.

By eliminating single-use packaging, the Qyos solution lowers the price of daily need goods, helping consumers to save money while reducing household waste by 50%. What’s more, eliminating waste at the source will significantly diminish waste-handling costs for property managers. 

Impact

QYOS has partnered with more than 10 big FMCG brands to distribute their products in our refill system in 11 locations, and in 2022 alone we have saved more than 100kg of plastic packaging waste.
