Get cash for your cans. The new state of the art TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine is your local hub for returning your eligible containers. Open 363 days, including most public holidays and for 14 hours a day - you can recycle at a time that’s best for you.
The TOMRA Reverse Vending Machines are located near the lower carpark and loading dock. Access via Hinkler Drive.
The self-serve Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs) can take up to 100 containers per minute and are easy to use. You can get your refund as a retail cash voucher, digitally through the Containers for Change scheme ID, or you can donate it to a charity of your choosing.
Cash Vouchers are available from Reverse Vending Machines (RVM) and are claimable for either cash or discounts at any Woolworths including the Coles at Arana Hills Plaza. To collect a retail voucher for your returns, simply put your containers through the Reverse Vending Machine and press the “Voucher” button to collect – no sign-up necessary.
You can now get your refund digitally transferred into your bank or PayPal account. Sign up for a scheme ID from the Containers for Change website https://member.containersforchange.com.au/?scheme=qld , and select your preferred payout method. Once you have signed up, you will receive your scheme ID barcode, which you can save to your wallet or use within the Containers for Change QLD app –https://www.containersforchange.com.au/qld/app
How digital payments works:
- Scan your barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine before you start your session. The scanner is on bottom-right of an RVM.
- Insert your containers
- Select Payout on the screen when you’re done – you will get your refund within 1 business day.
To donate to a charity, simply download the Containers for Change app, search for a charity or cause of your choice and add their scheme ID barcode to your app board.
Scan their barcode at the RVM and the refund will go directly to the charity.
