IS THERE A PLASTIC BOTTLE REDEMPTION PROGRAM NEAR YOU?

Many of our branches have been making concerted efforts to separate their plastic bottles from general waste – a fantastic start to all of us making a difference to our environment.
Drink container litter makes up to 44% of all litter volume in some states – so every bottle that is collected and correctly recycled goes a long way in our war against waste.

 

Each state has a different recycling scheme. Many states are introducing Return and Earn programs with collection points being established to make the process even easier.
Below are details of each states programs. Please take a moment to check details of your state:
