We believe in second chances.
For people and the planet.

What we take.

Scout Recycling Centre accept a wide range of products and material for recycling. If you have a lot to drop off, try to pre-sort the material as much as possible. This will save you a lot of time at the recycling centre as it will help us service you more efficiently.

Deposit Legislation applies in SA, NT, NSW, ACT and QLD. SRC’s 10 cent deposit applies to beverage containers purchased in SA, NT, NSW, ACT and QLD. The deposit is redeemable when the container is returned to a Scout recycling centre in the state of purchase. Don’t forget to remove lids, and tip out any liquid left in the cans or bottles.

Don’t live near as Scout Recycling Depot but still want to donate to your local scout group? Click here to see a list of all the Scout Groups that have drop off points to collect your cans and bottles.  All donations to your Scout Group go back to assisting the scouts in your area.
