When returning your eligible drink containers at a TOMRA location in NSW, QLD, NT, and WA, there are multiple ways to claim your recycling refund.
Cash Vouchers are available from Reverse Vending Machines (RVM) and are claimable for either cash or discounts at a nominated redemption partner. To collect a retail voucher for your returns, simply put your containers through the Reverse Vending Machine and press the “Voucher” button to collect – no sign-up necessary.
The cash voucher will list which retail partner which you can collect your cash from. If your retail voucher lists Coles as the partner, it can be claimed from any Coles state-wide. If your retail voucher lists Woolworths as the partner, it can be claimed from any Woolies state-wide. If your cash voucher lists a provider outside of Coles and Woolies, it will only be redeemable from that location (NSW only).
Note: The myTOMRA App is unavailable in WA. PayPal and E-Voucher payout methods are only available to QLD, NT, and NSW recyclers.
