Every 10c container returned to a refund point gets another chance to live its potential, again and again. 

Here's how it works.

Once you return your containers to a refund point, they are sorted, processed and sold to approved recyclers. The approved recyclers then turn your containers into new glass and PET bottles, aluminium cans and other items like food packaging and plastic-based construction items.

83% of all 10c containers returned (by weight) stays in Australia and is made into products we consume every day!
