Gympie Landcare is now a registered depot for the Containers for Change Scheme.
As a state, we’re great at many things. However, when it comes to recycling, Queensland can do a lot better. In fact, we have one of the lowest recycling rates in Australia, at around 44%.
Each year, approximately three billion beverage containers are generated in our state alone and are the second most littered item.
So, to help us all improve our recycling efforts and keep our beautiful environment litter-free, bring your containers down and start recycling today!
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 a bag provided and stick your label on the front.
Please note: We do not give cash for container exchanges as we are an ‘Express Depot’. Your refund will be deposited into your selected bank account when you create your own code at the kiosk for recycling.
Labels are sourced from the ‘Return It’ kiosk with instructions on how to process your refund.
All you need to do is provide our code: C10161523
