Container deposit refund scheme - Qld


The Containers for Change scheme enables Queenslanders 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 Queensland.


Participants can:

  • reduce waste going to landfill 
  • reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions 
  • reduce litter
  • donate money to charity or keep the refund.


Eligible containers include most glass, PET, HDPE, aluminium, steel or liquid paperboard (cartons) between 150mL and 3L in size. All containers that can be recognised as an eligible container will be accepted.

Other conditions may apply.
