New Containers for Change RVM at Runaway Bay, QLD

Get cash for your cans. The new state-of-the-art TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine at Runaway Bay is your local hub for returning your eligible containers. Open 363 days, including most public holidays and for 14 hours a day – you can recycle at a time that’s best for you.

The TOMRA Reverse Vending Machines are located behind First Choice Liquor, opposite the Runaway Bay Tavern.

The self-serve Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs) can take up to 100 containers per minute and are easy to use. You can get your refund as a retail cash voucher, digitally through the Containers for Change scheme ID, or you can donate it to a charity of your choosing.

Cash Vouchers

Cash Vouchers are available from Reverse Vending Machines (RVM) and are claimable for either cash or discounts at any Coles including the Coles here at Runaway Bay Shopping Village. To collect a retail voucher for your returns, simply put your containers through the Reverse Vending Machine and press the “Voucher” button to collect – no sign-up necessary.

Digital Refund

Receiving your refund digitally into your bank or PayPal account is easy. Sign up for a scheme ID from the Containers for Change website, and select your preferred payout method. Once you have signed up, you will receive your scheme ID barcode, which you can save to your wallet or use within the Containers for Change QLD app.

How digital payments works:

  • Scan your barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine before you start your session. The scanner is on the bottom-right of an RVM.
  • Insert your containers
  • Select Payout on the screen when you’re done – you will get your refund within 1 business day.

Charity Donation

To donate to a charity, simply download the Containers for Change app, search for a charity of your choice and add their scheme ID barcode to your app board.
Scan their barcode at the RVM and the refund will go directly to the charity.
