Container Refund Scheme Information Sessions

Monday, 24 July 2018

The Queensland Container Refund Scheme (CRS) commences on 1 November 2018.

The LGAQ can confirm that COEX Container Exchange has now established their website that will be regularly updated with information on the rollout of the scheme.  

In addition, Boomerang Alliance and Container Exchange will be hosting a series of evening forums from July - September for local community groups and councils across Queensland to answer key questions relating to the scheme including:

  • How does the Container Refund Scheme work?
  • What is a donation point, and how does it operate?
  • How can community groups participate in the scheme?
  • Questions and Answers session

Container Exchange and Boomerang Alliance would like to invite key stakeholders and interested groups to one of the forums - DOWNLOAD the flyer.
