- Becoming a donation point and encouraging community members to donate their containers to your organisation
- Partnering or registering with your local container refund point to access container collection infrastructure (such as cages, bins or trailers) for your events or activities***

*Includes sporting and services clubs, schools, local catchment groups and registered charities.
**Additional checks are required before accounts are activated – please allow 3 business days before using your scheme ID.
***Operators who collect more than five million containers per year are required to make container collection infrastructure available free of charge for use by community organisations.
****You will be required to collect all eligible containers and pay the 10 cent refund to people returning containers. In return you will receive a handling fee. Refund points are required to meet additional requirements, including safety, opening times and accessibility for refund scheme customers. Each region has a maximum number of refund points in the first 12 months of scheme.
