The Ecotron was first introduced in March 2007 with the meaning of transforming unwanted Furni into new exclusive pieces of furniture which could only be attained through recycling. The Ecotron menu was accessible from the Shop within the Hotel, paired with instructions and an up to date list of attainable Eco Furni.
How It Worked
To recycle using the Ecotron, five eligible Furni (Furni that carries a green recycling symbol) would need to be dragged from your inventory into each of the five recycling slots.
After all five slots are filled, the Recycle button could be clicked clicked - which deposited an Ecotron prize box into your inventory. This could be placed in a room and opened, or traded in its unopened form.
In the original Ecotron, players had a variety of prizes, which they could control. By exchanging 10 items of furni, they would receive 20 gaming tickets, 20 items of furniture for a Palm Chair, 30 items of furniture for a Water Garden, or 50 items of furniture for a Polar Bear Sofa.
The Tickets, Palm Chair, Water Garden and Polar Sofa were all first released in March 2007 in the Finnish Hotel, the Moon Lamp first spotted in the UK Hotel in March 2008, and the Eco Penguin Statue in 2009.

Generation 2 Ecotron rewards (known as Eco) were very different from the old one. There were now 5 levels of gifts which players can obtain from the new Ecotron - Common (most likely to come up), Uncommon (1 in 5 chance of getting one of these items), Arcane (1 in 40 chance of getting one of these items), Phenomenal (1 in 200 chance of getting this item) and Urban legend (1 in 2000 chance of getting this item). Items now came in an eco present box. The Orange and Pear trees were replaced by the two Mushrooms in 2009.
On the 4th of May, 2012, it was announced that the Plasto furni range would be leaving the Habbo catalogue for good on the 12th of May that year. During this time, the Ecotron would only recycle Plasto furni and, instead of needing 5 items in order to recycle, only 3 Plasto furni were required. All the rewards had been changed during this promotion too and included furni from a new line of Black Plasto furni.
