Return and Earn


The Return and Earn drink bottle and can Initiative is here to make an impact in reducing drink container litter.

With Lane Cove Return and Earn you can receive 10 cents refund for all your eligible bottles and cans.

Please click the tab for eligible containers to see what is eligible to recycle. You can either bring your eligible containers to us at the depot or book a collection.

​The state and local governments are spending 150 million each year to improve our recycling standards as a nation. 

Business and homeowners are joining the fight against waste to keep Sydney looking its best. For more information regarding Return and Earn visit
