About Containers for Change and TOMRA Return Points

Containers for Change is Queensland’s container refund scheme with the aim of reducing litter and increasing recycling efforts across the state. The program incentivises individuals and businesses to collect and return eligible containers in exchange for a 10c refund per item.

To make the most of the Containers for Change program, find a convenient TOMRA Return Point near you. TOMRA offers standalone Reverse Vending Kiosks and full-service Recycling Centres to make recycling easy and accessible.

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.

TOMRA Return Point Types

Recycling Centers: For those with larger quantities of containers, TOMRA Recycling Centers provide full-service facilities, including the new Tip ‘n’ Go robots. Tip all your containers into the machine, and let it handle the sorting and processing while you relax and watch on the TV screen.

Reverse Vending Kiosks: Located at various convenient spots, these kiosks allow you to insert eligible containers individually to receive your refund vouchers instantly. Perfect for quick and easy returns.
