Container refund scheme breaks 400 million mark

container refund scheme

26 April, 2019 –

More than 400 million containers have now been returned across the state since the container refund scheme started late last year.

That’s refunds of more than $40 million going back into Queenslanders’ pockets as well as to our charities, schools, community groups and sporting clubs.

The scheme has also created more than 620 jobs across Queensland, which is fantastic AND that’s fewer containers littering our parks and waterways.

Our local Return-It QLD depot in Stafford is located at 46 Millway Street, Kedron.
(Mon-Fri 8am to 4pm, Sat 9am to 2pm)

You will receive a 10 cent refund for each eligible container that is returned by signing up via www.containersforchange.com.au

The process when you visit the depot is simple.

1. grab a tray
2. stack your containers
3. get your refund

You can also choose to donate your refund to a charity or community organisation – all you need is the group’s identification number.

To find out more, including FAQs and how to register community groups, schools, charities and clubs to become donation points, visit the Containers for Change website – www.containersforchange.com.au
