Before starting your recycling session, scan your personal barcode at the machine. Simply insert your containers and select Payout.
Refunds are paid to bank and PayPal accounts within 1 business day. E-vouchers can be used at the specified retail partner to get cash, or a discount off your shopping.
Cash Vouchers are available from every TOMRA Cleanaway Reverse Vending Machine and you can redeem them for cash or discounts at your local retail partner (check the top of the voucher).
Simply return your containers and press “Voucher” on screen. No sign-up necessary.
Take your voucher to your local redemption partner (listed on the top of the voucher) and hand it in at the service counter to get your cash refund. Alternatively, use it at the end of your shop to get a discount off your shopping.
