Happy Christmas from Return and Earn

The Return and Earn network will be closed on Christmas Day, 25 December 2019, and will reopen from 26 December 2019.

Reverse vending machines will be available at regular hours throughout the holidays (except Christmas Day). Over-the-counter return points and automated depots are run by independent business owners and staff, and their hours of operation may be affected during the holiday period. We recommend you check the operating hours of your local return point before visiting.

Return and Earn wishes you and your loved ones a very happy Christmas.
