Is “10c refund at collection depots when sold in SA” Marked On The Label Or Container?
The South Australian Governments Container Deposit Legislation (CDL) adds a 10c refund deposit to the price of certain drinks sold in South Australia.
The 10 cents recycling deposit can be refunded when the empty container, bottle, can or carton, is returned to Pooraka Bottle & Can Recycling Depot Adelaide in South Australia, and for many Adelaide people is how to make money recycling.
Beverages covered by the legislation MUST be purchased in South Australia and show on the label one of these markings:
“10c refund at collection depots when sold in SA”
“10c refund at SA/NT collection depots in State/Territory of purchase”
The 10c refund is often referred to as a ‘container deposit refund’.
