Another year of record growth, record volume, record return rates and record participation has characterised 2021 for TOMRA Cleanaway and the NSW container deposit scheme, Return and Earn.
Containers for Kids’. In partnership with the Starlight Children’s Foundation, the campaign aims at raising $250,000 to brighten the lives of sick kids.
Team TOMRA Cleanaway again participated in the ‘7 Bridges Challenge’, with an amazing effort the team raised $2,200!
Bermagui Marine Rescue protects the community enjoying the coastal region and is a featured charity on the local Return and Earn return vending machine (RVM) in Bermagui. The charity also has supporters who donate their container refunds in cash.

Located on a former brewers site in the mid-North coast of NSW, Grafton Container Return has come full circle, now providing the citizens of the region with the opportunity to gain their 10c refund on eligible bottles and containers.
The Inner West has a new location for locals to Return and Earn with the opening of a reverse vending machine (RVM) at White Bay Power Station in Rozelle. Inner West Council residents are enthusiastic recyclers, having returned more than 94.4 million containers since Return and Earn launched in December 2017, resulting in more than $9.4 million in refunds back into the hands of the community.
