In light of developments with COVID-19, some Containers for Change Mobile Container refund Points in Far North Queensland will remain closed however we are now servicing various points again on a fortnightly basis.

depots in Weipa and Cooktown remain OPEN and a BAG DROP option is available at both depot for after-hour drop-offs.

These measures have been put in place to help keep our communities and staff safe. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our valued customers.

We have now put procedures in place to operate our depots in Cooktown and Weipa and the option to use the BAG DROP AREA (refund will be paid via Scheme ID), which minimises personal interaction whilst still providing customers with an opportunity to safely return their containers. We will continue to keep you updated of developments.

In the meantime, we encourage customers to continue collecting eligible containers. To help with this, Auswaste will be supplying the mesh bags that we have available at the front gate of both depots, Cooktown and Weipa, for free to our customers. If you have any concerns with storing your containers until we can process them, please contact our office on 07 4069 5290 so we can discuss a possible solution.

Again, we apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
