RETURN AND EARN REVERSE VENDING MACHINE OPENS AT MARSDEN PARK HOME CENTRE
Written on the 25 May 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly today announced that Marsden Park Home centre will have a reverse vending machine for the Return and Earn container deposit scheme, where people will be able to claim 10-cent refunds for eligible drink containers they return.
The reverse vending machine will be located at 9 Hollinsworth Rd, Marsden Park and will go live this weekend.
"People will be able to choose to donate their refund directly to charities, receive a docket redeemable for cash or an electronic transfer using PayPal at the machines.
"Return and Earn is the largest litter reduction initiative to be introduced in NSW, and now there are more collection points for people to be involved," Mr Conolly said.
NSW Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton said the Marsden Park Home centre collection point was one of more than 601 operational sites across the state, with more to be rolled out in the weeks to come.
"There has been widespread community support for Return and Earn, with over 350 million containers returned across the state since December 1." Said Ms Upton.
Most drink containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for the 10c refund. Containers should be intact (not crushed or broken) and have a readable barcode to be eligible.
