Return & Earn

The Return & Earn container deposit system on site, launched in 2017 as part of our Environment programming, has helped our community to recycle an extraordinary amount of materials.

A collaboration between Addi Road and Tomra, our Return & Earn is the busiest in the southern hemisphere and is helping us to mitigate the environmental impact and reduce the waste of those living across the Inner West.

The Return & Earn facility is open for you to recycle cans, bottles and glasses from 7am to 9pm seven days a week. To find out more about what can and cannot be recycled visit the Tomra website.

Every bottle, can or glass recycled makes you eligible for a small refund or donation to a listed charity (including us here at Addi Road).

NO DUMPING! Please don’t dump other materials or rubbish that isn’t accepted by the machine. Addi Road has to pay to remove any rubbish and this takes important funds away from us helping people with food relief.

What can you recycle?

Containers made from glass, plastic, aluminium, steel snd even liquid cardboard are all eligible to be recycled at the Return & Earn container deposit facility.

Some specific containers however are not eligible (like wine bottles!) so be sure to check the Container Eligibility website prior to your visit so you don’t leave disappointed.
