The scheme targets beverage containers most commonly seen as litter.
Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible for a refund. You can also identify eligible containers by their refund mark, which manufacturers must include on all eligible containers by 1 June 2022.
Handy tip: make sure your containers are empty and the lids are off! Lids can be taken to various drop off locations to be recycled. Containers for Change Refund Points will also collect lids for recycling.
Generally, ineligible containers are those that are less than 150ml and greater than 3L. Other ineligible containers include all plain milk bottles, wine bottles, pure spirit bottles, cordial and registered health tonics. Pure juice containers over 1L (or under 150ml) are also ineligible.
