Help children with cancer through the Victorian Container Deposit Scheme.

The Children’s Cancer Foundation is now a donation partner for Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme. This means you can donate the refund from your containers to the Children’s Cancer Foundation to support world-class research, clinical care and much-needed family support programs for children with cancer.

Every eligible container is worth 10c, which can really add up!

You can donate your refund from eligible containers by:

Inputting the Children’s Cancer Foundation Donation Partner ID C2000010949 at refund points


Selecting the Children’s Cancer Foundation as your charity of choice on your Local Zone Operator’s App

Collect and donate as an individual or even run a collection drive through your school, workplace or community group during the year.

Every 10c refund really does make a difference and will help ensure children with cancer have access to the best possible and most advanced treatments available.

Handy tips:

Most aluminium, glass, plastic, and liquid paperboard (carton) drink containers between 150mL and 3litres are eligible – but be sure to check for the 10c mark on containers.
Container lids can be left on.
It is not recommended to crush containers as many refund points won’t be able to accept containers that have been crushed (machines need to scan the barcode on containers, and crushing cans can make the barcodes unreadable).
