The Queensland Container Refund Scheme (CRS)
began 1 November 2018

This means that certain drink containers now attract a 10c refund when returned at Refund Points located across the state. People returning eligible tetra packs, cans, plastic and glass drink containers can either accept the refund of 10c per container themselves OR donate to worthy causes, like the P&C at their local school.
PLEASE NOTE:  Glass drink containers are not acceptable for on-site school collection points.

Fundraising potential

HOW MUCH CAN YOUR SCHOOL MAKE?

The more you can encourage the school community to get recycling, the more funds you can raise for your P&C! There’s great potential to boost your returns by asking people to recycle at school events like school fetes and sporting events.
