NEW Drop’n’Go Pod in Darwin!

Avatar By Amy Wren

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

We are excited to announce the installation of a new Drop’n’Go recycling pod at the Northlakes Shopping Centre, Darwin, to provide customers with a convenient recycling collection point in partnership with Coles.

How it works.

Our Drop’n’Go pod makes it easier to recycle your eligible bottles and cans in a contactless way using our Envirobank Crunch app. The pod allows our community to recycle their containers and receive their 10c refund in a convenient way.

All you need to do is simply drop off your orange Envirobank collection bags into the pod before you shop! How easy is that? You can purchase the bags from Coles in Northlakes Shopping Centre for $1 where the proceeds will be donated to Coles charity partner Purple House. You can also fill any other durable bag with your eligible containers, but you will need to grab a bag label from our depot in Pinelands and place it on the bag before registering your bag in the Crunch app and dropping it in the pod.

The bags are then collected from the pod and taken back to our depot in Pine-lands where the containers are counted. We will then credit your containers counted directly into your Crunch account within 7 working days. 

Donate or redeem your Crunch credits.

What’s next? You choose, you can turn your bottles and cans into milk, bread and other grocery items by redeeming your Crunch credits for a Coles Gift Card, or redeem your Crunch credits for some Velocity frequent flyer points for your next getaway, or cash out your refunds to your PayPal account. You can also choose to donate your container refunds to Coles charity partner Purple House.

Purple House’s mission is ‘Making all our families well’. Purple House provides 18 remote clinics and mobile dialysis services which offers support for patients forced to relocate from their remote communities for treatment. What an incredible cause to donate your recycling too!

You can find the new pod in Northlakes shopping centre car park, outside Coles. Sign up for Crunch before you start recycling!
