About Reverse Vending Machines

RVMs are self service machines for returning your containers.

Tips for your visit

Before you arrive:

  • Separate eligible plastic and glass containers to save time at the RVM.
  • Empty all liquids, dispose of loose bottle lids.
  • If you intend to receive your refund via PayPal, download the myTOMRA app.

At the RVM:

  • Please consider nearby residence by returning your containers in an orderly manner.
  • Keep the RVM site clean and tidy.
  • Remember to take your ineligible containers home for kerbside recycling.

Upon arrival at the RVM, return your containers one by one into the plastic or glass chute. The machine will then read the container barcode and either accept or reject it based on its eligibility.
