CitizenBlue Business

Need a hand getting your empty beverage containers refunded? CitizenBlue is here to help.
We offer a range of redemption services for small to large businesses across Sydney. These include:

Collection Service

CitizenBlue can provide you with secure collection bins to store your waste onsite, minimise breakage and collect your empties 7 days per week. Collection Services for larger quantities of empties (1,000 at a time) are offered to metro locations at no cost and smaller operations with limited space can book a collection for a share of the refund income to cover the cost of transport.

Sorting Dry Waste and Recyclables

If you’re running a large event or just having problems getting your waste and recycling sorted, CitizenBlue can provide you with the staff and sorting systems to tackle your most difficult challenges.

Litter Capture and Recovery

We can provide you staff to collect litter and clean up after a big event, or if your premises is affected by littering, offer you public place bins (and negotiate their installation with council) to tackle the problem.


We can deploy a team of bright and energetic rubbish champions during events or peak periods to engage with your customers, help them deal with their rubbish and set a great example at those events that can be awash with empty drink containers and other litter.

Packaging Design and Procurement

We have found that we can often cut the costs of packaging, disposable cutlery and crockery by helping businesses redesign their packaging or develop procurement systems to better control the rubbish being brought onto your site. This can include re-usables, REAL biodegradable packaging and development of in-house take-back programs to tackle your waste.

Waste-Free Events

Ever been one of the last people to leave a music festival or even a big game of footy? The grounds can be knee-deep in garbage and sadly, this garbage is often caught by wind or rain, it’s not uncommon to often find traces of it kilometres away!

CitizenBlue and its event partners can tackle any challenge to help you manage the rubbish your event generates, and we can probably do it while saving you money at the same time .

Public Place Recycling

Our public places are designed for all of us to enjoy.

Let’s face it – we are the ones who make the mess. Why do we leave it to local councils to bear all of the responsibility for cleaning up our rubbish?

CitizenBlue has developed a unique self-funding, public place recycling system that allows us to scale up a council’s efforts to deliver public place recycling systems. We do this both by working with local business to tackle the litter generated around their premises, and by generating community-owned bin systems that can directly reduce the amount of rubbish found in our favourite places. We also funnel the refunds on empties towards other important community clean-ups and waste education.

Finally, we also deploy teams of street champions to patrol the streets and both educate people about how to handle their waste while also cleaning up the local area.
