Powering the Community through Return and Earn
When you Return and Earn, you can donate your refund directly to a charity, school or local community group. At the end of your session, simply select the "Donate" option and select from the range of selected partners. Most kiosks will list 3 national charities with a fourth charity local to that RVM's community.
100% of all of your Return and Earn donations go towards your selected charity.
Each RVM in the network can offer four places for donation partners and usually, three of these will be allocated to major donation partners featured state-wide and the other position reserved for local donation partners in individual localities. Donation partners will be rotated every three months to give a wide variety of not-for-profit organisations the opportunity to benefit.
