Waste & Recycling

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.
