Please deliver eligible containers (look for the 10c mark) to the large green Containers for Change collection bin at the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre.

The Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre collects and recycles eligible containers as a fundraising initiative through Containers for Change. All proceeds contribute to ongoing environmental education in the local region.


Containers for Change sort, process and distribute containers to approved recyclers. The approved recyclers then turn old containers into new glass and PET bottles, aluminium cans and other items like food packaging and plastic-based construction items. 83% of all 10c containers returned (by weight) stays in Australia and is made into products we consume every day!

Thank you to everyone who contributes to this cause!
