Return & Earn scheme

Turn your drinks containers into money for the animals at SAFE!

Good news – SAFE has partnered with myTomra Australia to join the returnANDearnNSW scheme which means that you can donate eligible drinks containers which convert into $ for SAFE.

Drinks containers must have a 10c label. They must not be crushed or broken and they should have their lids on. Beer bottles and cans are acceptable as long as they have the 10c label
These containers do not have a 10c label. Wine bottles are not acceptable

It’s easy to donate your drinks containers to SAFE some machines will have SAFE listed as a charity on them so it’s easy to choose

  • Put your containers in the machine
  • Press “DONATE” & choose SAFE Animal Rehoming on the touchscreen

And that’s it – your money will come directly to us

If you’re donating at a machine which doesn’t list SAFE on the screen it’s also easy.

Download the return and earn app nsw. Then go into the Charities list and choose SAFE.

When you arrive at a machine open the app and scan the barcode from your phone. Put the containers into the machine and that’s it! Easy. 10c from each of the containers you put into the machine will automatically be credited to SAFE and the screen will show the summary. Here’s the QR code for the app

SAFE is listed on the machines in these locations until 22nd October 2023. After that time you will still be able to donate via the app at any machine in NSW
