Container Deposit Scheme launches in Brimbank

You can now collect and cash-in eligible drink bottles, cartons and cans for 10 cents per item at several locations throughout Brimbank.

Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme is a new initiative by the Victorian Government that provides a 10c refund for every eligible drink container returned to a collection point. The scheme is funded by the beverage industry. Once conainters are returned, they become material for recycling.

TOMRA Cleanaway, the west zone network operator for the scheme in Brimbank, has installed reverse vending machines across the western district of metropolitan and regional Victoria accessible from 1 November 2023.

The state-of-the art reverse vending machines are just one of the refund point types in the region that are expected to increase recycling and reduce litter by up to half, bring new jobs and economic opportunities for disadvantaged people, charities and communities.

The reverse vending machines are located at:

  • Delahey Village, Taylors Road, Delahey
  • Keilor Central, 80 Taylors Road, Keilor Downs
  • Sassella Park, 119 Station Road, Deer Park
  • Brimbank Shopping Centre, Station Road, Deer Park
  • West Sunshine Community Centre, Kermeen Street, West Sunshine
  • Keilor Park Football Club, Stadium Drive Keilor Park


Over-the-counter refund points are located at:

  • Hart Recycling, 90-92 Boundary Road, Sunshine West
  • Traditional Grocery Store, 350 Taylors Road, Delahey
  • Goodwood Rd Milk Bar, 47 Belmont Avenue, Keilor Downs
  • St Albans Convenience Store, 18 John Street, St Albans
  • C-Hub General Store, 1/80 Community Hub, Sydenham
  • Glengala Fresh Fruit and Veg, 82 Glengala Rd, Sunshine West
  • Ardeer Convenience Store, 31 Maxweld Street, Ardeer


TOMRA’s reverse vending machine technology will scan and verify each container as it is deposited, and then provide options to either receive the refund amount as a retail cash voucher, via digital transfer direct to a bank account, or for the amount to be sent as a donation to a nominated charity or community group.

Refund point types include outdoor reverse vending machines, smaller format standalone reverse vending machines suitable for retail shops or clubs, over-the-counter refund points, pop up mobile collection points, and bulk container refund points called Depots.
