    Get cash for your cans. Located at Toowoomba: 104 Neil Street, our state of the art Recycling Centre is your local hub for returning your eligible containers. We’re open 7 days from 7am-5pm and most public holidays so you can recycle at a time that’s best for you.

    You can recycle your containers through our 9 world-class Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs). Our RVMs take up to 100 containers per minute and are easy to use. If you’re short on time, you can return your containers through our Bag Drop facilities – see our friendly staff If you need more information.

    You can get your refund as a retail cash voucher, digitally through the Containers For Change scheme ID, or you can donate it to a charity of your choosing. Cash Vouchers are available from Reverse Vending Machines (RVM) and are claimable for either cash or discounts at any Woolworths. 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.

    For digital payments, you can now get your refund into your bank or PayPal account. Sign up for a scheme ID from the Containers for Change website, and select your preferred payout method. Once you have signed up, you will receive a Scheme ID Barcode.

    1. Scan your barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine before you start your session. The scanner is on the bottom-right of an RVM.
    2. Insert your containers
    3. Select Payout on the screen when you’re done – you will get your refund within 1 business day.

    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

    If you have any further questions on this our friendly team will assist you in the Centre.
