The NSW container deposit scheme commenced on 1 December 2017. In the Northern Rivers that means getting ready for the coming festive season and a glut of drinks containers over the holidays with five outlets to cash in your containers. Currently these are mostly over the counter Collection Points with Lismore being the first in the region to receive reverse vending machines.
You can cash in your containers at the flowing places.
- MI Organics, Grafton – Crn Duke St & Kirchner St – Over-the-Counter Collection Point
- Matthews Metal Recycling, Maclean – 2 Paperbark Drive – Over-the-Counter Collection Point
- Humbly Oval, Lismore – Brewster St Recycling – Reverse Vending Machine
- BP Chinderah – 2 Chinderah Bay Drive – Over-the-Counter Collection Point
- Woolworths Woolgoolga – 1849 Solitary Islands Way – Reverse Vending Machine
There are opportunities for charity groups to receive donations through the scheme and vendors to become Return & Earn Collection Points.
