Return and Earn

In March 2018, I asked Council to look for a site to install a Return and Earn kiosk so people could recycle their drink containers and receive a 10c container deposit. It has only taken 2 years (along with regular requests for updates and persistence for an outcome) to find a location but I am pleased to announce that the City will finally be installing a reverse vending machine kiosk this month (February) at the City’s Kings Cross Ward Avenue car park.


The Reverse Vending machines can quickly redeem up to 500 containers at once and provide a variety of options to be refunded by electronic funds transfer, donating to a charity, or collecting a retail refund voucher that you can exchange for cash or in-store credit.
