First Victorian Container Deposit Scheme refund point installed



TOMRA Cleanaway has installed Victoria’s first refund point under the state’s new Container Deposit Scheme, in Buninyong. 

Located at Foodworks in Buningyong, the refund point will allow the recycling of eligible bottles, cartons and cans, for a 10 cents per item return from 1 November 2023. 

TOMRA’s Reverse Vending Machine technology will scan and verify each container as it is deposited, and then provide options to the user to either receive the amount through a retail cash voucher, via digital transfer direct to a bank account, or for the amount to be sent as a donation to a nominated charity or community group. 

James Dorney, TOMRA Cleanaway Chief Executive Officer, said it is the first of a number of machines to be rolled out in the area and across the state.
