Container Deposit Scheme

The Victorian Government has introduced a new Container Deposit Scheme.

The scheme will reward Victorians with a 10-cent refund for every eligible can, carton and bottle they return.

The scheme will deliver:

  • more and better recycling
  • less waste - old containers become new ones
  • less litter - cut by up to half
  • hundreds of new jobs and economic opportunities across Victoria
  • a cleaner, greener state.
