Container Deposit Scheme Icon

What is a container deposit scheme?

Container deposit schemes typically form part of a state government’s litter-reduction or broader sustainability strategy. They’re designed to reduce the amount of litter in our neighbourhoods by incentivising people to recycle with a 10-cent refund for every eligible container returned. Packaging companies are required to pay a 10-cent refund for every eligible container that is recycled and it’s our job to pass that on to you.

Our Pickup and Drop-off services provide people with access to their container deposit scheme operating in New South Wales, Queensland, the Northern Territory and Victoria.
