Clean up Queensland while supporting the SHE Rescue Home and IT’S NOT OK Projects!

Each year, approximately three billion beverage containers are generated in QLD alone and are the second most littered item. On 1 November 2018, the ‘Containers for Change’ scheme launched a network for more than 230 refund sites available across the state, where beverage containers could be returned for a 10-cent refund. Whilst helping us all improve our recycling efforts and keep our beautiful environment litter-free, the Containers for Change scheme allows you to donate that refund directly to IT’S NOT OK Projects with every container recycled! 


IT’S NOT OK Projects will receive 10c for every bottle donated.
