The Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) is sweeping the nation, and we're buzzing with excitement at Ecobin! Already launched in all Australian states and territories, except Tasmania (coming soon!), this eco-initiative is your ticket to earn some extra bucks while helping the planet. Here's how you can get involved:
Step 1: Choose the Ideal Bin for Collecting
First things first—you need a designated bin for your 10c containers. Look no further than Ecobin's CDS-specific bins, designed to streamline your collection efforts.
Step 2: Know What to Collect
Be sure you're stashing the right stuff. Check your state's CDS website for the list of eligible containers or look for the "10c" label on the item.
Step 3: Collect Away!
Now that you're equipped, fill up your Ecobin with eligible containers. Involve the fam, rally your colleagues—make it fun!
Step 4: Locate Your Nearest Return Centre
Time to cash in! Use our handy guide to find the closest container return centre in your state. Find your nearest return centre here.
Step 5: Cash In
Head to the return centre with your filled Ecobin. Score 10c for each eligible container, redeemable as cash, bank transfer, or a donation to your favourite charity.
So, are you ready to become a recycling hero? Every little bit counts, and together we can make Australia even greener.
