As of the 1 November 2018, Queenslanders are now able to return eligible containers to a container refund point. These points have been established throughout Queensland and will collect eligible containers in exchange for payment.
The primary objectives of a Container Refund Scheme should be to;
- Significantly reduce litter from beverage containers,
- Increase recycling of containers, and
- Grow community benefits by providing income to charities, encouraging social enterprises, and creating new jobs and regional business opportunities.
Container Refund Scheme points available on the Sunshine Coast can be found in Buderim, Caloundra, Kawana, Maroochydore, Moololaba and Mountain Creek.
