Refund Methods

    When returning your eligible drink containers at a TOMRA location in NSW or QLD, there are multiple ways to claim your recycling refund.

    Retail 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. These retail vouchers can be claimed from any Woolworths Australia-wide.

    Payout via PayPal is available as a refund option, providing a quick refund that can be used to transfer directly into your bank account or be used to make online purchases. To claim your refund through PayPal, download the myTOMRA app and connect it to your PayPal account via the Payment Settings option. When using a TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine, scan your unique barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine, make your returns, and select the Payout option.

    E-vouchers are available as a refund option and are claimable for either cash or discounts at Woolworths. Download the myTOMRA app and set your settings to E-voucher. When you’re at the TOMRA Recycling Centre, scan your barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine, make your returns, and select the Payout option. The E-voucher will appear in your myTOMRA app and can be claimed from the listed redemption partner.

    Charity Donations are available if you’d like to pay your refund forward. Simply return your containers into the Reverse Vending Machine, select the “Donate” button and select your preferred charity partner. 100% of your refund will go directly to the charity or community group of your choice.
