The NSW Governments container deposit scheme has been introduced to reduce drink container litter and will benefit our environment and community.
Anyone who returns an eligible drink container to an approved collection point will receive a 10 cent refund. The goal is to reduce litter in NSW by 40 per cent by 2020.
Return and Earn is a great way for schools, charities and community groups to fundraise for special projects while learning about the importance of reducing litter and recycling right.
Over the next 20 years the scheme is expected to result in:
- 1.6 billion fewer beverage containers littered
- almost 1 billion fewer beverage containers in landfill
- 12.6 billion more beverage containers being recycled
