Providing CQ with the most, hassle-free container refund sites possible!

Providing consumers with the most convenient and hassle-free container refund scheme possible is essential to encouraging the public to recycle and reduce littering in Australia. To ensure this, we must provide easy access points for people to return their eligible containers and also an efficient system that quickly processes refunds. We need to utilise technology like automated return terminals (ARTs) and container scanning kiosks designed to streamline container deposits, thus reducing wait times for consumers. This could be achieved by using an integrated payment system between retailers and government incentivising more use of these technologies. Furthermore, providing personalised options tailored to different lifestyle needs such as mobile apps with barcode scanners is crucial in increasing participation from all segments of the population.


Great news for our customers at Central Queensland Container Refund! We're excited to announce that we've expanded our refund program to include wine and spirit bottles. Now, not only can you contribute to a cleaner environment by recycling your beverage containers, but you can also earn a 10c refund for every eligible wine and spirit bottle you return. This enhancement to our program reflects our commitment to sustainability and our mission to incentivize responsible recycling practices. So, whether you enjoy a glass of wine or a sip of spirits, you can now make a positive impact on the environment while benefiting from our refund initiative. Start collecting those bottles and join us in making a difference today!
