Expanding the container refund scheme

Queensland’s container refund scheme (scheme), Containers for Change, aims to increase the recovery and recycling of beverage containers and reduce beverage container litter. Queenslander’s now have more choices to help recycle glass wine and pure spirit bottles.

From 1 November 2023, you can get a 10 cent refund on glass wine and pure spirit bottles when they are returned to a container refund point in Queensland. Or you can continue to place these containers in the kerbside yellow-lid bin where this service is provided.
