Just seven months after opening the doors, the Vinnies Return and Earn Bulk Container Deposit Centre in Dubbo has processed more than seven million bottles, cans and containers for recycling.
The centre opened in October last year.
Overall, residents across the Dubbo electorate have recycled more than 61 million drink containers through the scheme since it was launched in December 2017.
The Vinnies Bulk Container Deposit Centre in Dubbo is operated by Vinnies in collaboration with Regional Enterprise Development Institute Ltd (REDI.E) and in partnership with network operator TOMRA Cleanaway.

It is one of six Return and Earn automated depots operated by Vinnies, which receives the handling fee together with any donated container refunds from consumers to help support their important work in the local community.
Return and Earn participants receive 10c for each eligible container returned and can choose to donate some or all of their refund to Vinnies.
