TOMRA celebrates NSW Scheme contract extension

The TOMRA Cleanaway joint venture will continue in the role of Network Operator under the New South Wales container deposit scheme.

TOMRA celebrates the announcement that the TOMRA Cleanaway joint venture will continue in the role of Network Operator under the state of New South Wales’ (NSW) container deposit scheme (also known as a deposit return system), “Return and Earn”. The Network Operator Agreement has been extended for four years, ending in late 2026.

President of TOMRA Collection Pacific, Ryan Buzzell said, “TOMRA is proud to continue partnering with Cleanaway as Network Operator of the NSW container deposit scheme, which sees us playing a vital role in realizing true Clean Loop Recycling outcomes for NSW. Since becoming the Network Operator for the state in 2017, more than 7 billion containers have been returned for recycling through the scheme’s network of 620+ return points, equating to $700 million in container refunds and the creation of over 700 jobs in the circular economy.”

Under the extension agreement, TOMRA Cleanaway continues to be responsible for the NSW container deposit scheme network of convenient and innovative return points, which includes reverse vending machines, over-the-counter drop-offs, and automated depots. The joint venture will also be responsible for recycling collected containers and ensuring this material is sent to appropriate destinations, such as the new Circular Plastics Australia facility in Albury. TOMRA Cleanaway has additionally committed to greater community access to “Return and Earn” by increasing the number of convenient collection points across NSW.

Before NSW introduced the “Return and Earn” scheme, more than 160 million drink containers littered the state’s streets, beaches, waterways, and parks. Drink container litter made up 44% of the volume of litter in the state and cost more than $162 million a year to manage.

TOMRA is proud to play a key role in delivering this enormously successful scheme and continuing to be an important part of the NSW Circular Economy.
