Thank you to everyone who has chosen to refund their containers to us, supporting our fundrasing efforts.

While we are no longer a collection point we acknowledge that the Container Deposit Scheme supports a better and more sustainable environment so we encourage you to continue recycling your containers.

Donating your containers to Bendigo Foodshare:

Through Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme, you can make a double impact – you will be supporting a more sustainable environment and helping put food on the table for Central Victorians doing it tough.

If you would like to donate your 10c refund from each container you recycle to us, you can:

  1. Exchange your eligible containers anywhere in Victoria and choose Bendigo Foodshare as your chosen partner and select the option to donate your 10c refund to us.
  2. After collecting at home you can physically bring your containers to our warehouse in Long Gully. When we have a full bin, we will then take them to our closest collection point for a refund.

Every container counts, and your support helps us make a difference. Let’s turn recycling into positive change together.

The closest Bendigo collection points are:

  • Envirobank East Bendigo – 23 Wellsford Drive, East Bendigo
  • Envirobank Kangaroo Flat – 10 Phillips Drive, Kangaroo Flat
