Cash for wine and spirit bottles
Alice Springs Town Council offers a 10c refund for glass wine and spirit bottles every Saturday. These are to be taken to The Rediscovery Centre from 9:30am – 2:30pm on Saturdays. A maximum of 100 wine or spirit bottles receive a refund.
This service is available to all residents, providing that ID is shown.
Alice Springs Town Council reintroduced this Cash for Wine and Spirit Bottles service at the Regional Waste Management Facility every Saturday in December 2013.
Alice Springs Town Council has a long history of supporting container recycling, introducing its own scheme in 2008, before current NT legislation was introduced.
The service is in response to the high level of community interest in recycling as current NT legislation does not include wine and spirit bottles.
Alice Springs Town Council continues to encourage the Northern Territory Government to include wine and spirit bottles in its cash for containers legislation.
Please note: Alice Springs Town Council is not a registered Collection Depot, so no refund for eligible containers (marked with the 10c refund) can be given.
