Container Deposit Scheme in Victoria.
Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme
We’ll pay you for eligible bottles and cans with a 10¢ refund symbol on the packaging. Find your nearest Drop-off location or learn about our Pickup Service and get paid to recycle.
Whether you’ve collected 1 or 100,000 eligible containers, Envirobank has high-speed depots, RVMs and Drop’n’Go pods around the country. Find your nearest drop-off location.
Create an Envirobank account to book a pickup for your 10¢ recycling. You’ll get the $ and the sustainability stats in your account within two working days of pickup.
Get paid to recycle.
How it works
Bottles and cans must be clean and have the barcode intact
Return containers to a drop-off location or create an account to book a pickup.
Get paid 10¢ for every eligible container. It’s a tax-free refund.
What can I recycle?
Check for a 10¢ refund symbol
Bottles and cans with a 10¢ refund symbol can be recycled. They need to be liquid-free, uncrushed and barcode intact. Lids can stay on in VIC. Wine and spirits aren’t part of the scheme, except in Queensland.
100% Clean Recycling
No contamination, just the circular economy at work
Even if you do right by your yellow bin, your recycling can still end up in landfill. All it takes is a passer-by’s banana peel to contaminate the whole truckload! Make sure your recycling actually gets recycled, and get paid for it.
