Containers for Change provides an exciting opportunity for community groups, sporting clubs and charities to raise much-needed funds by encouraging members of the community to donate their 10c refund.

You can become a physical Donation Point, having a bin or cage on-site where people can safely drop off their eligible containers. These donated containers can be returned to your local Containers for Change Refund Point to receive your 10c refund per eligible container. Or become a virtual Donation Point, setting up a Containers for Change Scheme ID online and distributing your Scheme ID to your supporters. Anyone returning eligible containers to a Refund Point can then donate their refund to your group via your Scheme ID, with refunds transferred via direct deposit into your group’s nominated bank account.

Register your group for a Containers for Change Scheme ID here.

Physical Donation Points


Physical Donation Points are run by community and sporting groups, charities, and not-for-profit organisations to raise funds. All you need to do is set up a cage or collection point on-site where people can safely drop off their eligible containers. You can often arrange this cage with your local Refund Point operator. You’ll also need to arrange for the containers to be delivered to a Refund Point – which you can do yourself or partner with a Refund Point to do it for you. The Refund Point will do all the sorting and counting for you and send your refund by electronic transfer directly to your specified bank account (through your Scheme ID). This is a great set-up for organisations that have space for a cage.

Virtual Donation Points


Virtual Donation Points allow any community group, school or sporting group, charity and not-for-profit organisation to register with the scheme and receive a Scheme ID. This enables groups to share their Scheme ID with their customers, supporters and network base, without physically hosting a Donation Point themselves.
When you take your containers to an over-the-counter depot, drop-off, RVM or mobile or pop-up site, simply use the groups scheme ID to donate your containers and the nominated group will receive the 10-cent refund.
