Return and Earn

Get rewarded for recycling with Return and Earn!

Return and Earn is the rewarding way to recycle your drink containers. Every container returned makes an impact. By recycling bottles, cans and cartons, you’re helping our environment and earning along the way, putting money back into the hands of the community.


How It Works

  1. Collect eligible bottles and cans

Not all bottles, cans and cartons are included in Return and Earn. To help you work out what can and can’t be returned, use our quick container checker or search the container database. Remember, even if a container isn’t eligible for a Return and Earn refund, it can still be recycled through your household recycling collection.

  1. Take your containers to our return point

You can find the Return and Earn reverse vending machine located at Bridge Plaza carpark.

  1. Earn a refund or make a donation

Every eligible bottle, can or carton  you return is worth 10 cents.  The Return and Earn Reverse Vending Machines offer you cash vouchers, electronic payment (via the myTOMRA app) or the option to donate.  Over the Counter sites offer you cash refunds and some offer the opportunity to donate.  Automated Depots offer cash refunds and some offer electronic transfers.
