Depots can differ in return style. Some depots have staff who count your 10¢ containers for you, while others will let you scan your 10¢ containers yourself.

Additionally, certain depots may offer drive-through or Drop & Go services. 

Depots offer your refund as on-the-spot cash, a bank account payment, or as a donation to a good cause.

Self-serve Kiosk

Self-serve Kiosks count your 10¢ containers and scan their barcode to check they are accepted. Just insert your 10¢ containers, one-by-one, and let the Kiosk do the rest!
You will receive your refund as a local grocery store voucher or as a bank transfer or donation using your member number payment details.

As barcodes need to be scanned, crushed 10¢ containers or those without legible barcodes won't be accepted. Some Self-serve Kiosk locations may have a Drop & Go service available to use if you know your 10¢ container is accepted but it won't scan.

Frequently asked questions

Can container lids be returned?

Lids are welcome – but only if they are removed from your containers. Save your drink container lids separately (it’s a good idea to bag them for ease) and return them for recycling.

Do I bring my own bags and labels at bag drops?

Absolutely. Some bag drops may provide bags and labels, but it’s worthwhile to bring your own, just in case.

Choose a bag that can be closed and attach a tag labelled with your member number and name.
