We’re a container refund point operator for the Queensland Containers For Change scheme (CoEx). The QLD Container Deposit Scheme is designed to reduce litter across Queensland by allowing customers to return their eligible drink containers for a 10c refund. Our 10 state-of-the-art modern Recycling Centres are designed to handle returns of all sizes, from small-scale returns to large bulk deposits, and allow customers to claim their refund in cash vouchers or ePayment.
Each Recycling Centre will be equipped with 9-15 TOMRA reverse vending machines and bag drop* facilities for customers, as well as Commercial Bulk Service for Commercial and Community Organisations. The popular myTOMRA app will also provide an electronic payout of refunds and details on depot locations and opening hours.
*To increase the safety and wellbeing of our customers & team members during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are implementing a number of temporary changes at our TOMRA Recycling Centres in SE QLD:
- We will be closing all of our Recycling Centres for 2 brief periods of 15 mins at 11am and 2.30pm each day – to allow for additional thorough cleaning of our facilities
- We will be restricting the total number of people allowed inside our Recycling Centres at any one time to ensure good social distancing can be maintained by all of our customers – and to comply with Government mandates that prohibit large gatherings
- We are introducing a new traffic flow system at all of our depots – together with clearly marked crosses for people to stand on whilst either using the machines or waiting to use the machines – again to ensure people can practice good social distancing
- We have enabled Touch Free Recycling by reducing the time-out function on our machines from 30 secs to 15 secs and signage at all Recycling Centres clearly explains how to take advantage of this
- We are temporarily suspending our bag drop service so that we can focus on providing the best possible Touch-Free Recycling experience through our reverse vending machine technology
If you have any further questions on this our friendly team will assist you in the Centre.
