During the holiday period, our automated depots and over-the-counter return points have varied opening hours. Contact your local return point or our network operator call centre on 1800 290 691 to check location specific hours before visiting.

Some of our return points are being impacted by the weather. We urge everyone to please take extra care, keep updated on all emergency announcements and consider returning your containers once the weather improves. Please check the status of your nearest return point here or via the Return and Earn app.
