Container Deposit Scheme

The State Government’s Containers for Change program is scheduled to be  launched in June 2020. People  will be able to return eligible empty containers for a 10-cent refund, which they can either collect themselves or donate to a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisations registered with the Container Deposit Scheme. 

People can return their containers in two ways:

  • at container refund points, where you can choose to collect or donate your refund, or
  • at donation points run by local community groups, charities or not-for-profits, where you can donate your container for that group or organisation to claim the refund.

Once launched, not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises, community groups and sporting groups will be able to register to receive donations when people return their containers.

Community and not-for-profit organisations can also register to be a donation point in their own right, using a cage or bin to collect eligible containers.
