Return and Earn
Return and Earn is a modern, convenient and accessible example of a container deposit scheme. Backed by legislation, Return and Earn was designed and developed by the NSW EPA to reduce drinks container litter across NSW. The success of the scheme is achieved through a strong framework of government and industry partnership that is regulated by the NSW Environmental Protection Agency , administered by the Scheme Coordinator, Exchange for Change , and delivered by Network Operator, TOMRA Cleanaway.
Commencing in December 2017, Return and Earn is the biggest litter reduction initiative ever introduced in Australia. With a goal to reduce drink container waste in the litter stream by 40% by 2020 – Return and Earn has delivered outstanding achievements in a very short period of time.
