Containers for Change
Did you know that Queenslanders, including everybody right here on the Redcliffe Peninsula, can return eligible containers via a container refund point for cold, hard cash!?
Container refund points have been established across Queensland to collect eligible empty containers in exchange for the payment of a refund and we have one on our doorstep, located in Margate.
Are you a community group, sports club or another organisation looking to fundraise? Why not champion a container collection drive and retain the 10c refund from each container for your group!
1. COLLECT ELIGIBLE CONTAINERS:
Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for a refund when returned to a container refund point. There are some that are not eligible though so check the website before you start collecting! www.containersforchange.com.au/
2. CHOOSE YOUR REFUND OPTION:
You can either set up a scheme ID (best for groups) or if you are an individual you may be able to collect cash or vouchers! Check with your closest hand off point. Refund amount is 10cents per eligible container.
3. HEAD TO A DROP OFF POINT:
We have a drop off location on the Peninsula located in Margate. You’ll need to bag it, tag it (if you are choosing to use a scheme ID) and drop it! Your refund should be processed within 24-48hrs.
