How to get your Containers for Change refund

What’s Eligible?

Most beverage containers (larger than 150ml and smaller than 3L) that are made from aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard are eligible for a 10c refund when returned to a TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine. In QLD, glass wine and spirit bottles are also eligible.

Do not crush your containers or remove the labels as our scanners will need to identify the shape, label and barcode to register your refund
