The Change Makers

They’re not paid actors or famous faces. The people you’ll meet in these videos are real.

Practical and down-to-earth. Hardworking and open. They’re true optimists and adventurers who, in their own quiet but determined way, are helping make real change happen.

These Change Makers work at the coalface of the Containers for Change recycling program. They’re refund point operators, container collectors, charity workers, local club members, even school kids. And they’re living proof that everyday people – not just governments and institutions - are at the heart of a successful recycling program.

Together, they share a vision that a cleaner, greener environment is possible, and with a little hard work, passion and people power, they will make it a reality.

Meet the Change Makers


You can be a

Change Maker


Making change is easy. It all starts with you.

Collect your recyclable containers instead of tossing them in the waste, then drop them off at a container refund point where you can either keep or donate your 10c per container refund.

Not only is it great for the environment, it’s a great way to make some pocket money or support local charities and community groups.
