We want to help make Coca-Cola plastic bottle recycling, as well as other kinds of recycling, as easy as possible for Australians.

To keep our bottles and cans out of oceans or landfill and make sure they have another life, Coca-Cola Amatil supports cost-effective, well-run container refund schemes across Australia which reduce litter and increase overall recycling rates. These programs pay people a 10cent refund to return drink containers for recycling. We’re also the principal operator of the South Australian Container Deposit Scheme, though our ownership of Statewide Recycling.

Coca-Cola Australia supports grassroots collection schemes, such as Citizen Blue in NSW, where the proceeds of containers collected go towards environmental and community charities.

Australians are already good at recycling and we will be working to help Australians better understand how and where to recycle our products through a new advertising campaign later this year.
