Container Recycling Program

There are a number of refund recycling schemes across the country that provide charities and community groups with the opportunity to raise funds on an ongoing basis.

When you recycle eligible containers via the refund point, you have the option of donating the 10-cent refund per eligible item to CCA. Your donation helps us provide essential services, raises awareness, funds research scholarships, and much more. Meanwhile, the scheme itself also encourages environmental sustainability.

The state schemes that CCA are signed up to can be found below.

Victoria: Container Deposit Scheme

Queensland: Containers for Change

New South Wales: Return and Earn

Western Australia: Containers for Change

Each state-provided recycling scheme is different. Consider reading the requirements and how it works before participating.
