Containers for Change

Better Recycling

Gympie Landcare is a registered Express Drop-Off Depot for the Containers for Change Scheme!

As a state, we have been recycling containers for change since 2018, with 1.9 billion beverage containers recycled in 2021 – 2022 year, with a 48% reduction in beverage container litter in the environment.

So, to help us all improve our recycling efforts and keep our beautiful environment litter-free, bring your containers down and start recycling today!

Did you know that by returning your containers at the Gympie Landcare Nursery, our organisation receives a 1 cent donation for EVERY container that you return – and this doesn’t come off your refund!

Opening Hours

Wed, Thurs, Fri: 8.30am – 3.30pm
Saturday: 8.30am - 3pm

Public Holiday Hours

Closed on all Standard QLD Public Holidays

How Does It Work?

Bring in your recycled containers and pop them into the designated purple bins. All funds from the containers in the bins are donated to Gympie Landcare.  

If you would like to claim your own change for the containers, you must use and fill your own multi-use plastic bag, write your scheme ID number on a label, stick your label on the front and place your bags in the pink container provided.

Please note: We do not give cash for container exchanges as we are an ‘Express Depot’. Return-It Queensland will deposit all funds directly to the bank account that you have nominated upon creating your Containers for Change account. For all enquiries relating directly to containers or refund amounts, please contact Return-It directly on (07) 3390 1377.

Labels can be found hanging on the right-hand side of the container. 

If you would like to donate the funds from your entire bag of containers to Gympie Landcare, all you need to do is provide our code for the sticker: C10161523

Did you know that when you donate your container funds to our organisation, we receive a total of 11 cents per eligible container!
