Aberglasslyn residents will be able to recycle at their local Woolworths as of Sunday, with a reverse vending machine due to open on June 10.
The machine is the latest addition to the NSW Government’s Return and Earn scheme in the Lower Hunter, which aims to tackle waste by providing a 10 cent refund for eligible bottles and containers. It joins similar reverse vending machines now situated at Thornton, Rutherford and Kurri Kurri.
Woolworths Aberglassyn is located within the complex on the corner of McKeachie Drive and Aberglasslyn Road, Aberglassyn. Most drink containers between 150ml and three litres are eligible for the 10c refund. For more info, including a full list of eligible drink containers, visit returnandearn.org.au
