There is now less than a month to go until Queensland’s Container Refund Scheme, Containers for Change, kicks off on 1 November.
Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch said the Container Refund Scheme will benefit Queensland’s environment, communities, sporting and charity groups, and will also help create local business opportunities.
“Around three billion drink or beverage containers are used in Queensland every year,” Ms Enoch said.
“Laid end-to-end, those containers would stretch around the world roughly 10 times.”
“Our container refund point network provides several different options for Queenslanders looking to return their eligible containers.
“We want to make sure Queenslanders, wherever they are in the state, have the opportunity to register, receive the refund, or donate it to a charity, school or community group of their choice.
“All Queenslanders should take advantage of this scheme and claim their 10-cent refund on eligible containers.
