Earning money from Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme, CDS Vic, is now easier for residents in Point Cook with another new refund point now open in the suburb.

A reverse vending machine has been installed at The Brook Hotel at 215 Sneydes Road Point Cook, the third in the Point Cook area and the 15th in Wyndham since CDS Vic commenced on 1 November 2023.

James Dorney, TOMRA Cleanaway CEO, expects the new Point Cook vending machine to prove as popular as the other locations,

“Our machines are quick, convenient, and automated, and able to be seamlessly integrated into retail and community locations.”

“The community has shown that when provided with a convenient, accessible, and technology-based container deposit scheme network, they will get involved.”

This new refund point is situated in the carpark next to The Brook Hotel, and allows locals to deposit their empty eligible bottles, cartons and cans there and receive 10 cents in return.
