Container deposit scheme

The NSW container deposit scheme, Return and Earn, began rolling out across NSW on 1 December 2017. Drink container litter makes up 44% of the volume of all litter in the state and costs more than $162 million to manage.  Return and Earn is the largest litter reduction scheme introduced in NSW and will help meet the Premiers goal of reducing the volume of litter in the state by 40% by 2020.

TOMRA Cleanaway provides the network of collection points to facilitate refunds across NSW.

  • Coles Lavington
