Return and Earn is currently open and can be accessed for returns if it is in line with the most recent advice from the NSW Government Public Health Order. Recent orders limit the reasons for people leaving their homes without a reasonable excuse. People continuing to use the Return and Earn scheme need to ensure they comply with the latest public health orders.

Return points can be accessed if they are at supermarkets or in locations that can be accessed under the Public Health Order.

In accordance with government advice, we ask anyone visiting a Return and Earn return point to maintain social distancing of at least 1.5 metres from others and to practice good hygiene including using hand sanitiser or wet wipes to clean hands before and after returning and to stay home if they feel unwell.
