Container deposit refund scheme - NT


The Container Deposit Scheme enables people in the Northern Territory to take eligible beverage containers to return points and receive a 10 cent refund for each container. You can choose to keep your refund or donate it to charity.

There are many convenient container return sites across the Northern Territory.

  • reduce energy use
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • donate money to charity or keep the refund.


All approved containers will have one of the following approved 10 cent refund markings on the label:

  • 10 cent refund at collection depots/points
  • 10 cent refund at South Australia and Northern Territory collection depots
  • 10 cent refund at collection depots when sold in the Northern Territory.

Other conditions may apply.
