People returning eligible containers at reverse vending machines will be able to donate their refunds to:
- Cancer Council
- St Vincent de Paul
- Surf Life Saving NSW
- Planet Ark.
To donate a refund to one of these organisations, simply insert an eligible drink container into a reverse vending machine, select the ‘donate’ option and choose a group.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and a receipt will be issued.
Charities, community and sporting groups, schools, and other not-for-profit organisations can register their interest to become a donation partner on the Return and Earn website.
People can also receive their refund into a registered PayPal account via the myTOMRA app, or receive a printed retail refund voucher to exchange for cash or an in-store credit at a local retail partner.
