Meeting the needs of our customers

In Queensland, container recyclers have a range of ways to cash in their empties. Container Exchange is proud to operate a scheme that delivers choice and convenience to our customers. Whether it’s a large commercial load or a few bags of bottles and cans, Queensland’s scheme offers a return solution to suit customer needs:

  • Self serve or drive-through depots.
  • Reverse vending machines in depots or retail precincts.
  • Bag drops.
  • Pop-up services.
  • Home collection.
