Containers for change

What if we told you that you can make a big difference with small change… You can help keep our beautiful environment litter-free and give Aussie kids a fair go at the same time.

Take your containers to your local refund point

Containers for Change awards you with a 10 cent refund for each eligible container returned to a refund point. You can donate the money you raise to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Check out to see which containers are eligible and where your closest refund point is (230 sites across QLD)
  2. Start collecting eligible containers. Engage your workplace, school or other local schools/organisations.
  3. When returning containers to a refund point, enter the Variety – the Children’s Charity of Queensland’s Scheme ID: C10147093. If you prefer, you may receive cash refunds depending on your refund point and then deposit the funds into our account. Please contact the Variety office on 07 3907 9300 for the account details.

If you have any questions about Containers for Change, they can be contacted on 13 42 42 or [email protected].

Get Queensland Container Recycling’s help!

You can make a difference to a child’s life by having collection bins at your household, workplace, school or business with the refunds coming to Variety! The best part is we arrange the bins for you and Queensland Container Recycling collect the containers and organise the refunds! All you have to do is continue recycling.

If you are located in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or Gold Coast and recycle loads of containers, you should consider having a Containers for Change collection bin/s. They are the size of a wheelie bin and Queensland Container Recycling drops off the bin/s, collects the containers regularly and notes the refund from each location so that you know how much you have raised. It’s easy, convenient and you can enjoy an .08c refund for each eligible container! If you’d like to arrange bins, please contact [email protected] or 07 3907 9300.
