Containers for Change QLD is spearheading a groundbreaking initiative in Redland City, Scenic Rim, and Sunshine Coast Council areas with the introduction of Container Exchange Points.

This innovative project, currently under trial in local parks and public spaces, aims to reshape recycling practices, reduce container litter, and foster community engagement.

Community-Powered Recycling

The Container Exchange Points offer residents and community groups the opportunity to play an active role in the recycling process.

Eligible empty containers can be conveniently deposited in the designated baskets or bin attachments, allowing residents or community groups to collect and return them to refund points.

The incentive? A commendable 10-cent refund for every eligible container returned puts money back into the pockets of environmentally-conscious individuals and community organisations.

Containers for Change QLD: A Force for Positive Change

Behind this initiative stands Container Exchange (COEX), a not-for-profit organisation committed to establishing and running the Containers for Change scheme in Queensland.

Their mission revolves around tackling container litter, promoting recycling efforts, and channelling refunds to individuals, charities, and community groups.

By creating a sustainable loop, COEX ensures that every recycled container contributes to both environmental well-being and community prosperity.

Redland City’s Green Future

As Redland City embraces Container Exchange Points, it marks a significant stride towards a more sustainable and community-driven approach to recycling.

The initiative not only addresses environmental concerns but also empowers residents to actively participate in creating a cleaner, greener future.

This transformative project aligns seamlessly with Australia’s commitment to fostering responsible recycling practices, making Redland City a beacon of sustainable living in the nation.
