This place is amazing with an awesome team - maybe the greatest people I have ever met! They are always welcoming, friendly, hardworking, helpful, and willing to explain and instruct everything to you in detail. Henry even took the effort to manually scan more than 100 bottles for me when the machine rejected them. Admirable people doing their job perfectly and contributing to the community! I hope they are paid well!

Had an awesome experience at CitizenBlue! The team was super friendly and made recycling a breeze. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they even offer electronic refunds through the CDS Vic app if you prefer it over cash. Major thanks to the great team at CitizenBlue!

CDS Vic & CitizenBlue clean up the environment

A clean environment is crucial to our quality of life. Victoria is known for its stunning landscapes and pristine coastlines, yet the growing issue of plastic and other waste threatens these natural wonders. To combat this challenge, we’ve established CitizenBlue at our Williamstown Depot.

With the Victorian Container Deposit Scheme in full swing, there’s a unique opportunity to have a significant impact on reducing waste and protecting our environment. At CitizenBlue, we’re actively participating in the scheme, allowing you to recycle while supporting our initiatives to combat waste pollution in our waterways and coastline.

We invite businesses, government bodies, community groups, and individuals like you to join us in making Victoria one of the cleanest and most environmentally responsible places on Earth! Together, we can make a difference.

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.
