Return and Earn-a LPS SRC Initiative
Bottles, cans and cartons make up a large proportion of the litter on our streets, beaches and green spaces. Tackling the problem costs NSW millions of dollars every year. Return and Earn is a way for us all to help solve the litter problem and be rewarded for our efforts.
Return and Earn is about the bottles, cans and cartons that make up a large proportion of the litter in our neighbourhoods. So, not all containers are eligible for a Return and Earn refund but they can still be recycled through your household recycling collection.
Most drinks containers between 150ml and three litres can get you a refund. They need to be in good condition (not broken or crushed), be empty and have the label attached.
The containers can be made of:
- Or liquid paperboard (cartons)
Donate refunds to your school
At LPS we are collecting eligible drink containers from school and home and will take them to a return point for a refund to support the SRC in providing more resources for the students of LPS, for example a Buddy Bench that we are looking to purchase.
There is a blue recycling bin near the canteen, please deposit eligible bottles here. Thanks also to Ms.Stephenson who will transport the bottles to the deposit centre.
