Helping Bundaberg Recycle

Opening hours (last customer received at 3.30pm)

  • Monday - Friday 8:00am - 4:00pm
  • Saturday & Sunday Closed

If you are looking to recycle your goods - simply take them to our refund point, located at 78 University Drive, Bundaberg.

Make sure you visit the Containers for Change website, where you will need to sign up for your scheme account before you receive your first refund.

IMPACT Community Services was successful in winning three contracts under the Container Refund Scheme (CRS) – refund point, processor and logistics contracts.

The scheme has required some significant changes to processes and infrastructure, and has resulted in the creation of a number of new jobs.

If you are interested in cashing in your eligible containers, the process is simple – register online for a Containers for Change scheme account. This allows your refunds to be paid directly into you bank account.  Then drop off your containers in a secured bag with a tag, including your name, scheme ID and phone number at the CRS shed (beside the Material Recovery Facility on University Drive).

If you are happy to just continue to put containers in your yellow top bins – that works for us as well as it will continue to be sorted by IMPACT’s workers. Either way, the key message is that we all need to continue to recycle.


The Containers for Change Qld app is packed with special features―access your scheme ID and transaction history, scan containers to check eligibility, check our opening hours and more!
