Join the Protect Our Planet recycling appeal and use your 10c container deposit refunds to save wildlife!
TOMRA, Return and Earn NSW and Containers for Change in QLD & WA have partnered with the Australian Marine Conservation Society to help ensure the survival of Australia’s native species for generations.
Simply donate some or all of your 10c drink container refunds at a TOMRA reverse vending machine in NSW (Return and Earn), or a refund point in QLD, WA, or the NT.
