What is Containers for Change?

This scheme is a Queensland Government initiative to reduce litter and increase recycling. If you enter our DVConnect Scheme ID C10028088 when you recycle, we receive $0.10c for each container. For more information, check out their website.

If you would like to do this at your workplace, school or university, these poster might be helpful.


Help DVConnect and help clean up Queensland.

As a state, we’re great at many things. However, when it comes to recycling, Queensland can do a lot better. In fact, we have one of the lowest recycling rates in Australia, at around 44%.  Each year, approximately three billion beverage containers are generated in our state alone and are the second most littered item. So to help us all improve our recycling efforts and keep our beautiful environment litter-free, this scheme lets people get a 10 cent refund for each eligible container returned to a refund point.

Thank you DVConnect for saving my Mums life, and mine. You guys getting us out of there changed everything. Thank you so much. Life is good now!
