Auswaste strives to create a network between communities and community groups in Far North Queensland to enable everybody - no matter how far away from bigger townships they may live - to have the opportunity to be part of the Containers For Change QLD container refund scheme.
With 22 sites across the Cape including 2 depots - Cooktown and Weipa - and 20 Mobile Refund Points, we aim to reduce landfill and recycle as much as possible.
As you may be aware Containers for Change provides an exciting opportunity for community groups and charities by helping to raise much needed funds.
Below are some of the great community groups in the Cape that have started to make a change to not only the environment by recycling, but also to their clubs and organisations by raising needed funds for their projects.
You can choose to donate your containers via the scheme ID.
It is really simple: When you return eligible containers to a refund point (depot or mobile refund point) just let our friendly staff know that you wish to donate your containers to the organisation of your choice.
Here are some FNQ locals you can assist by donating the next time you drop off your eligible containers:
