Wide Bay company ‘U Too Can Recycle’ is now coming to the region weekly, offering you money for certain recyclables.
The depots are at the Tin Can Bay IGA on Thursday from 10.30am to 12.30pm and the Rainbow Beach Sports Club each Thursday between 2pm and 4pm.
The company has suggested the most reliable way to get involved is to go to containersforchange.com.au and get your own scheme ID.
There are three ways to get a refund:
- Bundle up your goodies and put a sign inside with your name and phone number and they will take it and bank your money.
- Join the scheme and they will direct debit the money to the bank account nominated.
- The team will pay cash on the spot for those who put their cans or bottles back into the 24 or 30 cartons.
Soft drink bottles, water bottles, small flavoured milk and containers must be clean, empty and have caps off.
If you are unsure of what they will take, go to the Containers For Change website as there is full information and a space to type in the barcode number to see if it is eligible for a refund.
