Australia: May Pera Sa Basura

Image
YES!! You read that right 'may pera sa basura!!'. If only we should have known it right away, we  had kept all the soda cans we drunk when we arrived. 
The introduction of the state-wide container refund scheme, Containers for Change, gives people an incentive to collect and return containers for recycling in exchange for a 10 cent refund payment. It also provides benefits to social enterprises, communities and regional and remote areas by creating new job, recycling and fundraising opportunities.

We had our second drop-off few weeks ago and that was $6.80.  😊
