Return and Earn Scheme

This week is 'National Recycling Week' and HR has commenced a War on Waste by embracing the NSW Government's Return and Earn Bottle Deposit Scheme. 

The initiative began rolling out across NSW on 1 December 2017, with the aim of reducing litter by 40% by 2020.

UNSW was the first University in NSW to introduce a reverse vending machine in February this year, located near the Physics Lawn. The reverse vending machine is the cleanest and most efficient way to recycle glass, plastic and aluminium cans, cartons and bottles.
