Bottles Can Change Lives

Today is #internationaldayofcharity! We couldn’t be prouder to be partnering with three of Australia’s most respected charities: OzHarvest, The Salvation Army and Beyond Blue. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, members of our community are asking these charities for support - in some cases, demand for their vital services have risen by up to 60% - but their fundraising activities have plummeted. You can now support these 3 charities through the “Bottles CAN Change Lives” recycling appeal by donating some your eligible drink container. Just 1 in 20 bottles or cans donated and we would exceed our $1 Million target! Every eligible bottle or can you donate through Return and Earn Reverse Vending Machines in NSW, Containers For Change TOMRA Recycling Centres in QLD & NT raises 10c to either OzHarvest, The Salvation Army Australia, or BeyondBlue. 100% of your 10 c refunds will go towards helping these charities provide food, financial assistance or 24/7 mental health support to those who need it most. Find out more at and share your recycling story using the #bottlescanchangelives hashtag. 

The Salvation Army acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters throughout Australia. We pay our respect to Elders and acknowledge their continuing relationship to this land and the ongoing living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.

The Salvation Army is a child safe organisation that is committed to ensuring the wellbeing of children and young people, and protecting them from harm.
