Very easy drop off the cans and bottles. Did that yesterday.

Friendly and super helpful staff! Not a line on the weekend morning as there are 3 big recycling machines(maybe more - if I miss any) to sort the recycle items.

Fantastic having fast count machines for both walk in customers and commercial larger volumes, seeing product brought in from pubs and clubs is fantastic, given its was most likely previously going to landfill.

Due to a parents illness, was unable to recycle at machines. Citizen Blue Return and Earn were very helpful with the 3 trips I did in one day. They are local and I will visit in future.

Return and Earn & CitizenBlue clean up the environment

CitizenBlue is committed to preserving the beauty of Sydney, recognising the environmental threats posed by plastic and litter in our waterways and coastline. As a response to the ongoing challenges, we have established our organisation with a focus on participating in the Return and Earn cash for containers refund scheme, initiated in NSW in December 2017.

Through our Five Dock depot, we actively engage in the collection and recycling of drink bottles and cans, contributing to the broader effort to combat waste pollution.

We invite businesses, government bodies, community groups, and individuals to collaborate with CitizenBlue in making Sydney the cleanest city globally. Together, let’s leverage the opportunities presented by the Return and Earn scheme to create a lasting impact in the ongoing battle against waste and environmental degradation.

Members of Our Charity

Our members work with CitizenBlue, to pool their expertise and resources to combat waste pollution and advance sustainable practices in NSW. Unified in our dedication to environmental responsibility, these collaborative members play an integral role in amplifying the impact of our initiatives. By forging a strong alliance among like-minded organisations, we work collectively to realise our vision of making Sydney a beacon of cleanliness and exemplary environmental stewardship.

Targeting Rubbish in Critical Coastal Communities

Many of our larger coastal communities are really struggling to cope with the flood of rubbish imported into their towns. Most communities’ stormwater and sewage runs down our mountains and foothills, before being disgorged into the ocean, already struggling with a tourist and visitor population that can double the waste generated by its residents.
