The region's can-do attitude to recycling is undoubtedly growing!

IMPACT Community Services' Container Refund Point on University Dr has witnessed a massive increase throughout the last year and December with more than a 100% increase.

IMPACT's Enterprises General Manager Robert Henderson said according to the COEX figures we had an "exceptional December" with figures up 180% on the previous year at the CRP.

He said throughout 2021 we also achieved a 108% increase on the previous year.

"This shows that recycling is being taken up by the Local Community," he said.

When you recycle with Containers for Change, you get a 10-cent refund for every eligible container you return.

Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible for a 10 cent refund - they typically have a 10c refund mark on them.

You can check the eligibility by visiting the Containers for Change here.

Some of the items that are not eligible include:

  • Plain milk containers of all sizes including plant-based milk substitutes
  • Glass containers that contained wine or pure spirits
  • Containers 1L or more that contained flavoured milk, pure fruit or vegetable juice, cask wine or cask water
  • Concentrated/undiluted cordial or syrup containers
  • Sachets above 250ml that have contained wine
  • Registered health tonics

IMPACT's Container Refund Point is located at 78 University Dr and open from 7.30am to 4pm on weekdays and 8am to midday on Saturdays.
