There are hundreds of refund points across Victoria, so look out for your local. By August 2024 the network will grow to more than 600 refund points.
What can I return?
Most aluminium, glass, plastic and liquid paperboard (carton) drink containers between 150mL and 3 litres are eligible. You can keep the lids on, we recycle them too.
Check for the 10c mark
Look for the 10c mark on the drink container label. It is often located near the barcode.

We recommend you don’t crush containers, as most refund points can't accept them if containers have been crushed.
They will become part of the circular economy too and will be made into new products.
