Containers For Change raises money for Orangutan Foundation International Australia through recycling

Containers for Change is a fantastic initiative available to everyone in Queensland and Western Australia to increase recycling efforts to help keep our environment litter free. What does this have to do with orangutans?… I hear you ask.

Every container you recycle through the Containers for Change charity program will mean 10 cents is donated to OFI Australia to help us in our fight to save orangutans. You just take your eligible containers to any refund point and use our Scheme ID number. By doing something as simple as recycling, you are also helping orangutans.

Maybe you could ask your family, friends and people at your workplace, school or university to help you collect containers.

How does Containers for Change work?

  • You collect eligible containers
  • Take them to a deposit centre in Queensland or WA
  • Deposit the containers using our Scheme ID number – see below
  • We will get 10 cents for every container you deposit
