A new scheme that makes it easier and more rewarding to recycle drink containers launched on 1 November 2023. The Victorian Government Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) will reward Victorians with a 10-cent refund for every eligible can, carton and bottle they return.
Plans are underway to create a network of collection points within Victoria, so it’s convenient for people to access the scheme.
While there are currently no standalone refund points in Boroondara, there are over-the-counter opportunities in some small businesses.
Find the collection point closest to you with the CDS location map.
Identifying collection points within Boroondara
VISY is the network operator responsible for the region that includes Boroondara. We’ll provide updates to our community on new Boroondara locations as they become available.
Network operators have until August 2024 to ensure their scheme is fully operational and meets service density quotas.
Becoming a collection point – businesses and not-for-profits
VISY is taking enquiries from local businesses, not-for-profits and community and sporting groups that want to act as collection points and generate funds for their organisation.
Submit your interest on VISY's CDS collection point operator webpage.
