It's now even easier for Canberrans to recycle containers with eleven more return points for the ACT Container Deposit Scheme now open.

Two new points at Anglicare stores, two at IGAs and six new 'express return pods' increase the number of drop off sites across the ACT to 21.

Under the ACT Container Deposit Scheme you can return eligible beverage containers to return points and receive a 10 cent refund for each container. You can choose to keep your refund or donate it to charity.
