Dedicated Collection Bins

Workpower have a range of collection bins to suit businesses and organisations of all sizes. This makes it easy for you to separate and collect eligible containers.

We’ll come to your location and work with you to find the perfect size and shape for a collection bin and provide one for you, free-of-charge.

When full, simply take your containers to one of our Workpower operated refund points and redeem for cash.

Express Bag Drop

Our bag drop service is designed to save you time and effort and help you fundraise.

It’s a simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Bag it: Bag up your containers.
  2. Tag it: Write the Scheme ID* of the charity of community group you’re supporting on the bag
  3. Drop it: Drop your bags at one of our Workpower operated refund points

We’ll count your containers and deposit the funds directly into your nominated account. Just imagine, your empty containers on Tuesday could be turned into cash and in your account by Friday!

*For more information on Scheme IDs and how to set one up, go here.

All-in-one Collection Service

For large volume businesses and organisations, our scheduled collection service is the perfect, hassle-free solution. We’ll come to your place, pick up your cans and bottles, and count and deposit the funds directly into your nominated account.

We’ll place one of our dedicated collection bins are your place. All you need do is separate eligible containers and pop them into our bin.

There is no easier way to earn cash for your containers.
