Why it's good for you
Return and earn is a easy way to recycle your bottles and cans, and when you use certain locations or machines, you can make 10c per item or earn a retail voucher for places like Woolworths, Coles and IGA!
Why it's good for the world
Before the Return and Earn program was introduced, more than 160 million drink containers littered streets, beaches and waterways in NSW. Drink containers made up 44% of the volume of litter in the whole state and cost more than $162 million a year to manage. Since launching in 2017, the program has collected over 4 billion containers across 600+ return points.
Why it's good for others
Instead of taking your change when you recycle, you can choose to donate the money. You can even donate to the Choose Humanity team to help keep us running. Just use the donation button or scan our personalised bar code when you use the reverse vending machines.
So what now?
