In the spirits of loose change

In an Australian-first, the Palaszczuk Government has announced it will expand its popular Containers for Change program to include glass wine and spirit bottles from November 1, 2023.
It means Queenslanders will get 10 cents for every glass wine and spirit bottle deposited at one of over 360 container refund points found across the state.
The commitment to expand the scheme follows an extensive consultation period, where more than 6,600 Queenslanders shared their thoughts about including additional containers in the refund program.
98.1 per cent of participants were in favour of more containers being made eligible for refunds through the program.
