Return and Earn is about the bottles, cans and cartons that make up a large proportion of the litter in our neighbourhoods.
So, not all containers are eligible for a Return and Earn refund but they can still be recycled through your household recycling collection.
Most drinks containers between 150ml and three litres can get you a refund. They need to be in good condition (not broken or crushed), be empty and have the label attached.
The containers can be made of:
- Or liquid paperboard (cartons).
Our eligibility tool below will help you work out what containers you can and can’t return. Any that aren’t eligible for a refund can still be recycled through your household recycling collection.
