Regulated and Approved Containers

Regulated Containers  are types of beverages and containers that the NT CDS applies to. These containers require a supply approval under the  Environment Protection (Beverage Containers and Plastic Bags) Act 2014.

All approved containers will have one of the following approved 10 cents refund markings on the label:

  • "10c refund at SA/NT collection depots in State/Territory of purchase"; or
  • "10c refund at collection depots when sold in NT".


It is an offence under the Container Deposit Scheme for a retailer to sell regulated containers that have not been approved for sale in the NT.

If you 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
