Tathra Bushfire recovery gets $10,000 boosts

Return and Earn is continuing to deliver good things for the community and the environment with more than $10,000 donated to the people of Tathra to help with their bushfire recovery.

The Tathra Bushfire Appeal was added as a nominated charity for Return and Earn after bushfires tore through the town in March this year, devastating the community and causing millions of dollars of damage.

The people of NSW rallied behind the cause, donating $8,400 worth of their 10 cent refunds through the reverse vending machines across the state. An extra $2,000 was then donated by the Return and Earn network operator Tomra Cleanaway at the Tathra Bushfire Relief concert on 26 May.

More than 350 million containers have been returned in the six months since the Return and Earn scheme launched, highlighting the importance people across the state place on litter reduction and taking care of their communities.
