Return and Earn

The Flying Doctor is grateful to have been selected as a major donation partner of the TOMRA Return and Earn Scheme recycling program.

For the next six months, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (South Eastern Section) (RFDSSE), is the major charity partner for the TOMRA Return and Earn recycling program which is available for participation at more than 600 locations across NSW.

Your eligible bottles, cans and cartons returned to a TOMRA Reverse Vending Machine are worth 10 cents each. Until 22 August 2021, recyclers can select the option to donate the earnings of their return to the Flying Doctor.

Founded in 1972, TOMRA is the inventor and world leader in reverse vending systems and has had great success in changing the way people think about litter.
