Return and Earn 

A 10-cent refund is provided when you return an eligible drink container to one of over 600 return points across NSW. The closest facility for Kyogle residents is the Return and Earn TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine, located at the Kyogle Waste Facility, Runnymede Road, Kyogle.

What can be taken to Return and Earn? 

  • Eligible glass, aluminium and plastic drink containers. Ensure all containers have a 10c refund marker, so that you know your container is eligible. For further information, visit the EPA Return and Earn website.
  • All containers must be completely empty and rinsed to prevent odour.
  • Bottles must not be broken, crushed cans will not be accepted.
  • Lids can be kept on bottles as they are separated and disposed of appropriately. Bottle lids should not be put inside bottles.
  • The barcode on the drink container must be intact.

Please note the NSW Environmental Protection Authority is responsible for the design and development of the scheme, and manage the registration of all eligible beverage containers. Containers not accepted as part of the scheme include milk cartons, glass wine bottles, juice bottles and cordial bottles. These items can go into your household recycling bin.

To make manual counting easier and reduce on-site delays, customers are asked to:

  • Fill empty cardboard cartons with empty drink containers.
  • If bags are used to transport drink containers, count the number of containers at home and record the number (e.g. write number on side of bag).
  • Bring bags in units of 50 or 100 containers.
  • Limit the number of containers to no more than 500 at a time, otherwise substantial delays may result.

Please note: Under the scheme, residents dropping off more than 500 containers at a time must sign a refund declaration and show proof of identity (such as a driver’s licence).

To ensure you reap the rewards of the Return and Earn program, start stockpiling your eligible cans and bottles and bring them over to our local collection point. It’s a great way to earn extra cash whilst also keeping these items out of landfill.

Second Hand Saturday 

Hosted by Council and North East Waste, Second Hand Saturday is a much loved community event that supports re-use over landfill.

It’s also the biggest day of garage sales on the North Coast, held over two big weekends in the council areas of Kyogle, Tweed, Byron, Ballina, Lismore, Richmond Valley and the Clarence Valley.

Registration is free and participants can choose to either hold their own garage sale at home, or coordinate a joint garage sale with friends, family or neighbours. Another option is to join a local coordinated group garage sale e.g. with your local school, preschool, community organisation or Church.

All registered garage sales receive free online advertising on the Second Hand Saturday website, Facebook page and the free Second Hand Saturday app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

For more information on dates, registrations and locations, visit the Second-Hand Saturday webpage, follow the @mysecondhandsaturday Facebook page or call Council on 02 6632 1611.

Reuse and Repair Trail

The Reuse and Repair Trail is a unique business directory created by North East Waste and its member Councils (Kyogle Council, Lismore City Council, Richmond Valley Council, Ballina Shire Council, Tweed Shire Council, Byron Shire Council and Clarence Valley Council) to highlight the many amazing businesses and community groups that provide a repair, reuse, or restoration service for household goods and materials.

The Reuse and Repair Trail is currently open for reuse and repair businesses to register their service

The directory will be easily accessible to our regional community, giving them options of where they can go to get something fixed, or to pick up something second-hand.
