Victorians rush to collect refunds in first days of Container Deposit Scheme

Victorians have enthusiastically embraced Victoria’s new Container Deposit Scheme (CDS Vic), returning well over two million containers and collecting more than $200,000 in refunds in its first two days of operation.

CDS Vic officially began on Wednesday, with Victorians now able to receive a 10 cent refund for eligible drink containers returned at hundreds of refund points across the state.
