Digital Refund
You can now get your refund digitally transferred into your bank or PayPal account. Sign up for a scheme ID from the Containers for Change website here, and select your preferred payout method. Once you have signed up, you will receive your scheme ID barcode, which you can save to your wallet or use within the Containers for Change QLD app.

How digital payments works:
• Scan your barcode at the Reverse Vending Machine before you start your session. The scanner is on bottom-right of an RVM.
• Insert your containers
• Select 'Payout' on the screen when you’re done – you will get your refund within 1 business day.

Charity Donation
To donate to a charity, simply download the Containers for Change app, search for a charity or cause of your choice and add their scheme ID barcode to your app board. Scan their barcode at the RVM and the refund will go directly to the charity.
