Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why do I need to remove the lid from my plastic bottle?

Plastic caps are typically made from plastic #5 while the bottles they accompany are made from #2. These two types of plastic melt at different temperatures during the recycling process and therefore requiring special processing. We must also transport the plastic and leaving the lid on impacts the compaction for transport.

What does Container Deposit mean?

In South Australia and NT for containers that have a 10cent marking, you can receive a ten 10cent refund. More information here.

Can I crush my containers?

Please don’t, we use our technology to sort and separate and register the container for recycling. If you crush the container we may not be able to process as quickly.

What is a Container Deposit Scheme?

Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) refers to the collection of drink containers and receiving a cash refund for each container returned. Depending on the deposit system, containers can be returned to the manufacturers via the retailer, to designated collection depots, reverse vending machines or recovered as part of existing waste or recycling collection system.

What are the benefits?

Returning beverage containers for a $value refund reduces rubbish going to landfill or ending up in the environment, increases recycling rates, avoids using virgin material for new products, lowers greenhouse gas emissions, reduces water usage, creates jobs and generates cash in our hip pockets.
