From November 1 2018, you can recycle most plastics, glass and cans at designated Container Recycling Points in Brisbane and donate 10c for every container to the Coorparoo Australian Football Club by quoting donor registration number
This money will go toward grounds upkeep and Park development, such as mowing, topdressing, seeding, watering, lighting, and maybe a new scoreboard and timer.... Let us know what you think we should do with this income.
The Containers For Change scheme was introduced by the Queensland State Government and mirrors schemes already running in other states. Selected containers can be recycled at designated CRP's and the cash can be donated dirtectly to the footy club.
Soon, we will have our own container drop off point right at the Club so you can drop off recyclables on the way to training or at the weekend game. This is a fantastic way to help out our environment AND help out your kids' Club. We think that about 80% of our Club waste is recyclable. We are really looking forward to reducing our environmental footprint and becoming a more responsible community organisation.
What you can recycle
Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard beverage containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible. Returned containers must be empty and have the lids removed. Slightly crushed containers are acceptable – however, no broken glass will be eligible. Beverage manufacturers are required to display a refund mark on their containers by 1 December 2019, which will identify eligible containers.
Containers for cordial, plain milk, wine and pure spirits are excluded from the scheme. This includes containers filled with one litre or more of flavoured milk, pure fruit or vegetable juice, cask wine, or cask water. The initial scheme focus is on those beverages that are consumed out of the home.
Although not all containers are eligible for the scheme, all recyclable material can still be recycled in your local kerbside recycling bin.
