Recycling Near You

Donate your cans, bottles and CDL containers to assist your local Scout Group.

Your local Scout Group is an integral part of your community. They work hard to provide the most affordable activities, challenges and adventure for youth aged 6-26. The Scout Group is primarily responsible for managing it's own finances. Their income is derived from fundraising activities, membership fees and grants and sponsorship from the community and Government.

Scout Groups that collect or accept donated cans and bottles can be found here

By donating your unwanted CDL (Container Deposit Legislation containers) to your local Group, they can raise money to assist with the purchase of camping and outdoor activity equipment, boats and running expenses of their Scout Hall. These containers will be collected by the Scout Recycling Centre and the Group will receive 10cents per item. Some Groups raise close to $2000 through these donations in a year, quite a significant part of their income.

Take your recycling to a Scout Recycling Centre and you will paid for your recyclables.

Scouts SA runs 10 recycling centres in Adelaide as a commercial fundraising activity.

Click here to find your nearest centre and the recyclable product that you may take there.

Funds raised from these centres support Scout Groups via the State Scout Headquarters. These funds also assist in maintaining our campsites, activity centres and activity support groups. These groups and centres provide activities for Scouts across the State. These activities include flying, diving, climbing, canoeing, land yachting, performing arts and archery to name a few.

Thank you for choosing to recycle with Scouts. Your choice will really make a difference to many South Australian youth, many of who will become our community and business leaders of the future.
