TYPES OF REFUND POINTS

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

Certain depots may also 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.

RETURNING 825+ 10¢ CONTAINERS?

Look at you go trailblazer! But wait — if you’re returning 825+, we'll need to see your photo ID first!

If you’re returning 1,500+, we’ll also need to take a copy of your ID and ask you to fill out one of our declaration forms (and congrats on a seriously impressive haul!).

To understand how we keep your personal details under lock-and-key, chat to the team at your local refund point.

And remember — transactions can’t be split.

Why do you need to see or copy my ID?

Believe it or not — it’s a tax thing.

Our refund points have to comply with the ATO rules, the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Regulations, and their Operator Agreement.

What type of photo ID is accepted?

We need a copy of your official photo ID.

You can bring your driver’s licence, proof of age card, or passport (Australian or international).

What if I don't show my ID or sign a declaration?

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to accept your return or provide you your refund.
