Make a Return at the Kuranda Bag Drop

Mareeba Shire Council has teamed up with Mareeba Recycling and Containers for Change to deliver a Bag Drop at the recycling station at the end of Arara Street, Kuranda.

Bag it: Place your containers in sturdy bags or boxes to ensure the containers stay together. 

Tag it: Write your member number and name on any label and tag the bag.

Drop it: Leave your containers at the bag drop.

Designed for convenience, bag drops take slightly longer for you to receive your refund than at a depot. This is because bag drop sites are only serviced a few times a week – depending on the location. The containers are collected, transported and counted before the refund can be transferred to your account.

Proceeds for any containers that fall out of the bags and cannot be assigned will go to the Kuranda Men’s Shed.
