This is old news but I though a link to the Victorian Container Deposit Scheme website might be useful…

A better way to recycle drink containers in Victoria

On 1 November 2023 Victoria’s container deposit scheme, CDS Vic, commenced. The scheme rewards Victorians with a 10-cent refund for every eligible can, carton and bottle they return.

It is part of important work that is transforming Victoria’s waste and recycling system.

CDS Vic provides shared benefits to the community, environment and economy by delivering:

  • more and better recycling
  • less waste – old containers become new ones
  • less litter – cut by up to half
  • hundreds of new jobs and economic opportunities across Victoria
  • opportunities for charities, community groups, environmental organisations, sports and educational organisations to raise funds
  • a cleaner, greener state.
