The global reverse vending leader’s recycling centers – located at Osborne Park, Kelmscott, Myaree, Belmont and Joondalup – will each feature 11-12 TOMRA T-9 reverse vending machines where recyclers can return their bottles and cans.
Under the Containers For Change program, consumers pay a 10-cent deposit when they purchase an eligible beverage, which is refunded to them when they return their empty container for recycling. Recyclers receive a retail cash voucher of 10 cents per container that is processed through TOMRA’s machines. All vouchers can be redeemed for cash or used as a discount off their shopping at a participating supermarket retailer. Recyclers can also donate their container deposit refund to a local charity, direct from the reverse vending machine.
For the next six months, Western Australian recyclers can also participate in TOMRA’s national fundraising campaign Bottles Can Change Lives to help three of Australia’s most respected charities – Beyond Blue, The Salvation Army and Oz Harvest – during these challenging times around COVID-19.
