Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC has announced that a Return and Earn Reverse Vending Machine will go live today at Woolworths Lake Munmorah as part of the Return and Earn container deposit scheme.

The reverse vending machine will be located at 1 Tall Timbers Road,

Lake Munmorah where people will be able to claim 10-cent refunds for eligible drink containers they return.

“People will be able to choose to donate their refund directly to charities, receive a docket redeemable for cash or an electronic transfer using PayPal at the machines.

Return and Earn is the largest litter reduction initiative to be introduced in NSW, and now there are more collection points for people to be involved,” Mr MacDonald said.

“There has been widespread community support for Return and Earn, with over 328 million containers returned across the state since December 1.”

Most drink containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for the 10c refund. Containers should be intact (not crushed or broken) and have a readable barcode to be eligible.
