Container deposit refund scheme - SA


The Container Deposit Scheme enables South Australians 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 South Australia.


Participants can:

  • reduce waste going to landfill 
  • reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions when the containers are recycled into products
  • reduce litter
  • donate money to charity or keep the refund.

See the South Australian EPA website for more details.
