Brisbane residents have more opportunities to help the planet and get rewarded for recycling with the opening of new Containers for Change Return Points.

The kiosks are part of Queensland’s expanding Containers for Change recycling scheme and are designed and operated by TOMRA Collection.

The opening of the kiosks will allow residents to return their containers in reverse vending machines for a 10-cent refund. The new refund points are located at shopping centres, allowing a greater level of convenience for shoppers to access the kiosks while doing everyday activities.

Recyclers empty eligible containers into the machine which automatically recognises and counts glass, plastic, cans and cartons for recycling. Customers then have a choice of a cash refund, donating to a cause or a direct digital transfer to PayPal or their bank account.

“We are striving to make container recycling more convenient and accessible for Queensland families,” said Ryan Buzzell, TOMRA Collection. “Not only will this give locals a new way to protect the environment around them, it will provide the opportunity to earn extra money or donate it to those who need it most.

The kiosks are at North Burnett Recyclers Eidsvold, TOMRA Kiosk Sunny Park, North Burnett Recyclers and Return-It Underwood. All kiosk are open from 7am to 7pm Monday-Saturday, 7am-5pm on Sundays and 9am-5am public holidays.
