Through our container return scheme collections network, more than 2.24 billion containers have been collected in NSW and nearly 760 million containers from Queensland’s Containers For Change scheme.

We have captured more than 115 million cubic metres of landfill gas, turned into nearly 135 million kilowatt-hours (kwh) or renewable energy.

Our robotic washline has sanitised more than 1.1 million Sharpsmart containers, reducing up to 940,000kgs of single use containers to landfill each year.
