Return and Earn Rockdale

St George Metal Recovery is now an Automated Depot (AD) collection point for the NSW Governments Return and Earn initiative. What this means is that we are a bulk collection facility, ideally suited to customers with more than 500 containers in a single transaction. Don’t worry, we still take small quantities.

We will pay you 10 cents for all eligible drink containers covered by the scheme.

For more information on what is and what is not eligible can be found here on the Return and Earn Web site or by calling the scheme operator Tomra Cleanaway on 1800 290 691

Wheelchair accessible Return and Earn Location

St George Metal Recovery recognised early on the importance of making our recycling facility easily accessible to people in wheelchairs or those who may have difficulty with access. From having parking directly in front of our site to having extremely friendly staff to help with any of your accessibility requirements, you can rest assured knowing that all people can have easy access to our Return and Earn services.

Children and Family Friendly

You are more than welcome to bring your children or grandchildren down to Rockdale Return and Earn. We believe that all kids should be taught from a young age about recycling. As we pay cash on the spot for all eligible containers covered under the scheme, children can see an immediate benefit from doing so.
