Frequently Asked Questions

Drop-offs are a convenient way to recycle your containers and receive a refund. However, it does take longer to receive your refund at bag drop-off points vs. taking your containers to an over-the-counter depot (where containers are counted on the spot). Payment times can vary due to demand and/or collection frequency.

Bags of containers at many drop-off sites are cleared in Mackay daily, Monday to Friday. Sarina area twice a week, Seaforth area weekly. Airlie area three times a week and Proserpine twice a week. Containers aren’t counted and entered into the system until the bags have been picked up and taken to the depot. As a result, refunds for bag drop-offs can take up to seven working days to be transferred to your account. Please be careful to ensure that all containers are eligible, otherwise this could impact the amount you are refunded vs. what you were expecting.

If your refund is taking more than expected, please call us on (07) 4952 6866 or email so we can investigate.
