'Return and Earn' is the NSW Government's container refund scheme.  Under the scheme residents can claim a 10 cent return on most types of drink containers with the aim of reducing litter and increasing recycling. It launches on 1 December 2017.

Individuals can redeem money on the containers they use or they can continue to use their yellow recycling bin. 

The scheme will also provide opportunities for charities, groups and clubs to earn money by collecting and redeeming containers, including containers that have been littered.     

Promotion of the scheme has begun and more information on accepted containers and local collection points can be found at the NSW EPA's Return and Earn site  or their Fact Sheet.
