WATCH: Drive-through container return centre now open in Burleigh

Taking part in the containers for change scheme has become a whole lot easier for locals, with a drive-through facility now open in Burleigh.

In a bid to continue to improve the recycling habits of Gold Coasters, the Return-It depot at Burleigh Heads now offers a drive-through service.

The facility allows customers to drive up into the depot, where they are greeted by a staff member who will help them sort and count the eligible containers.


They will then be offered a cash refund for their containers, which they can choose to keep, or donate to a Return-It QLD charity partner.

See how it works in the video below:

In addition to the drive-thru facility, the Return-It depot at Burleigh also now offer bulk container returns, as well as a 24-hour bag drop facility for customers who have a scheme ID.

The Return-It Depot at Burleigh is located at Unit 2C, 1 Greg Chappell Drive, Burleigh Heads. They are open 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday, and 9am – 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
