Woolworths first retail partner for NSW Return & Earn Container Deposit Scheme
Woolworths will be the first retail refund partner for the New South Wales Return and Earn Container Deposit Scheme.
The scheme, which launches 1 December 2017, will provide consumers 10 cents for every eligible beverage container they return for recycling.
Woolworths will provide up to 180 collection points including the installation of reverse vending machines. The machines can issue refunds directly, direct funds to charities or issue Woolworths shopping vouchers.
Markus Fraval, Director, Strategy and Business Development at TOMRA Collection, the network operator for the scheme, said he is pleased to have Woolworths on board as the first partner.
“This will help support the delivery of the scheme in time for the December 1st launch,” Fraval said.
“It will also provide customers with convenient RVM locations where they can drop off their containers and then redeem their vouchers at a nearby Woolworths supermarket.”
The Return and Earn Container Scheme has been initiated by the New South Wales government to help reduce litter in the state by 40 per cent by 2020.
