Return and Earn Scheme Partners Celebrate Success

“Not only is the scheme putting money in the pockets of the people of NSW, thousands of community groups, charities and schools are also sharing in the benefits with over $18.2 million returned via donations and fees from hosting return points,” he said. “The scheme directly employs over 700 people across the state and provides opportunities for social enterprises such as Vinnies, Hoxton Industries and Citizen Blue to also raise funds as return point operators in our customer-focused and convenient network.” James Dorney, CEO TOMRA Cleanaway
