Find your nearest collection point for the Return and Earn container deposit scheme.


There will be more than 200 collection points across NSW when Return and Earn launches on 1 December 2017.

Collection points include:

  • reverse vending machines
  • over-the-counter sites such as cafes, small grocers and newsagencies
  • automated depots for high volumes of returns.

Refunds can be received as cash, digital payment, in-store credit or a charity donation.

Minister for the Environment Gabrielle Upton said more collection points will be finalised as the scheme rolls out.

“This is the first step in rolling out more than 500 collection points across NSW," Ms Upton said.
