Eligible and ineligible Containers

Donate into the Scouts Container Bin

Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for a refund when returned to a container refund point. The beverage container will usually display the refund mark.

  • Popper style containers with flavoured milk or juice

  • beer and soft drinks - plastic or glass bottles and cans

  • flavoured milk bottles


Containers can be squashed but must be recognisable. Doing so helps the environment by reducing truck movements.
