Containers for Change: Fund Raising for Star Gayzers.

Thanks for your support !!!  

Since November 2018: we've raised over $1000.00 via the Containers for Change refund scheme and we're on-track to be able to offer cheaper membership fees in the next financial year for members.

You're welcome to bring your containers to our monthly meetings:
  • Please remove any plastic bottle caps/lids
  • Please ensure conatiners are empty
  • Please rinse containers
  • Please do NOT crush any containers

Queensland's container recycling scheme started 1st November 2018.

We are now registered as a community group for the scheme where your returned containers can help raise funds for Star Gayzers.

Just quote Star Gayzers Scheme ID: C10013703 when you return your containers for recycling and the refund will automatically be sent to Star Gayzers.

Not only will you be doing your bit for the environment, you will be earning some change for Star Gayzers.
