Donate your container refund to charity

Published: 23 November 2017

When the Return and Earn container deposit scheme launches, you’ll be able to donate your refunds to charity.

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.
