CONTAINERS FOR CHANGE: Full list of 16 drop-off locations

FAMILIES can turn rubbish into money as the Containers for Change program rolls out at 16 drop-off points in Ipswich, Somerset, Lockyer and Scenic Rim areas.

READ MORE: 

Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for a 10c refund when returned to a container refund point.

Each year, about three billion beverage containers are generated in Queensland and are the second most littered item.

To be eligible the beverage container must:

  • Have contained a beverage product that is not excluded from the scheme. For example, cordials and plain milk are not included in the scheme so containers that have held these products are not eligible for a refund
  • Display the refund mark. This is so that the container refund point operator can see if the container is part of the scheme. Most containers will already have a refund mark for SA and NT and these containers are eligible under Containers for Change. Beverage manufacturers have until 1 December 2019 to display the new refund mark on their containers
  • Be an approved container. Some containers are made out of materials that cannot be recycled. These containers may not be approved (by the Queensland Government) as an eligible container as the scheme requires that when a refund is paid on a container that container must be recycled.
