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.

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.
