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.
