“We are so excited to be able to bring our advanced recycling technology to the local community of Forrestdale. Not only will this give locals a new way to protect the environment around them, it will provide the opportunity to earn extra money or donate it to those within their community who need it most,” says Ryan Buzzell, TOMRA Collection President.
“By using this return point, in combination with your household recycling collection, we can all do our bit to reduce the millions of containers that are littered in our environment each year, while also being rewarded for our efforts,” he said.
Recyclers can also choose to donate some or all of their refund to one of the 4000 participating Containers for Change charities, via their scheme ID barcode – with 100 per cent of the refunds donated going directly to the chosen organisation. There’s also the option to donate to TOMRA’s ‘Containers 4 Kids’ recycling Appeal and help Starlight Children’s Foundation brighten the lives of sick kids and their families.
The Forrestdale centre is located at 10/2 Hensbrook and will be open 7 days a week from 7am to 7pm Mon-Sat and 9am-6pm on Sundays and public holidays.
