New reverse vending machines have been installed in Wyndham City Council locations! Residents in Werribee South and Point Cook  now have access to new refund point locations. The new refund points will make it even easier for locals to obtain their 10c refunds by recycling bottles and cans through Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme, CDS Vic.

CDS Vic west zone network operator TOMRA Cleanaway installed the new machines at Wyndham Harbour, Werribee South and Saltwater Reserve, Point Cook.

As well as earning money themselves, the reverse vending machines will allow residents to donate to local organisations registered with CDS Vic as fundraising partners, including:

TOMRA Cleanaway chief executive James Dorney said the company were excited to have indeed the new refund points in Wyndham.

 

Our machines are quick, convenient, and automated, and able to be seamlessly integrated into retail and community locations,” he said.
“As Network Operator for the CDS Vic West Zone, we are driven to provide a convenient and accessible network of refund points. The community has shown that when provided with a convenient, accessible, and technology-based container deposit scheme network, they will get involved.”

Environment Minister Steve Dimopoulos said the CDS had proved hugely popular since its inception in November last year.

“We’re completely transforming recycling in Victoria backed by a $515 million investment to deliver the landmark transition to a circular economy, driving progress towards our target of diverting 80 per cent of all material away from landfill by 2030,” Mr Dimopoulos said.
