New Return and Earn Options for Lane Cove

After waiting for ages to get a return and earn reverse vending machine in Lane Cove, we finally got one at Little Street Carpark.

It’s been a success and that has meant that sometimes the machine is full, or you stand behind a professional bottle collector as they feed in one bottle at a time.  The machine is most popular on a Sunday, which means it can be full on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.
