Bottle Recycling Adelaide – Plastic & Glass Bottles Recycled.
Adelaide Super Collectors, such as Pooraka Bottle and Can Recycling Centre, take bottles that qualify for the South Australian governments container deposit refund scheme.
Under SA container deposit legislation (CDL), bottles marked with either:
“10c refund at collection depots when sold in SA” or
“10c refund at SA/NT collection depots in State/Territory of purchase”, can be taken to recycling centres to collect 10 cents per bottle.
Being one of the oldest and most popular recycling centres Adelaide residents visit when searching ‘bottle recycling Adelaide‘, the friendly staff at ‘Pooraka Bottle and Can Depot’ sort through the bottles making sure all lids and caps have been removed, separating them into containers of plastic bottles and glass bottles, before they’re sent away to be recycled into other items.
Regular customers, who take advantage of the 10 cents recycling scheme to make money, remove all lids from their bottles and separate out the different types into bags and boxes before they come in. This saves us time, so we can count and pay out much faster, allowing you to get back home sooner.
