Eligible and Approved Containers
What containers can I get a refund on?
Territorians can now get a 10 cent refund on a wide range of cans, bottles and cartons as part of the Container Deposit Scheme.
To help Collection Depots you should only deposit containers that are eligible, clean and not crushed.
For information about eligible containers download the Regulated beverages and containers factsheet below.
Factsheet: List of Regulated Beverage Containers
Some containers that are not eligible include plain milk, soy milk and cordial bottles
What labels do I look for?
All eligible containers will have an approved 10 cents refund marking on the label.
Refund markings will state one of:
"10c refund at collection depots when sold in NT"
"10c refund at SA/NT collection depots in State/Territory of purchase"
Information for retailers:
If you are a retailer and are unsure whether or not a product that you sell has been approved under the scheme please contact the Waste and Resource Recovery Team on 1800 752 632.
Please be reminded that it is an offence under the scheme to sell containers that have not been approved for sale in the NT.
