Return & Earn Is Now Open

Return & Earn is Now Open; Recycle Your Unwanted Containers

Return and Earn has been introduced to reduce drink container litter across NSW. As such, containers that are eligible under the scheme are those most commonly found as litter.

How it Works:

  • A reverse vending machine is a machine where you can return empty eligible containers like bottles and cans for recycling
  • When you insert your empty containers into the chute at the front of the machine, it will scan your container to ensure it is eligible for a refund
  • When you’ve finished depositing the containers, choose your preferred refund option on the electronic screen
