World Class Recycling for Bottles and Cans
Scout Recycling Centre Elizabeth specialises in drink containers. Lots of drink containers! There is a huge machine that gobbles up your bags of containers, counts them, identifies and spits them into the right bin and the rate of hundreds a minute. It is fun to watch!
If you live in the Elizabeth area, Edinburgh, Penfield, Hillbank or One Tree Hill this clean modern depot is the place to go.
You’ll get 10 cents cash refund for deposit cans and bottles. Don’t forget to remove the screw caps from plastic bottles. Also, leave your cans uncrushed. The machine counts and sorts by reading the barcodes – which are a bit hard to make out on a crushed aluminium can!
Don’t let your wine bottles and other non-deposit bottles and cans (including washed milk cartons) go to landfill. Bring them along to Scout Recycling Centre Elizabeth and we’ll deal with them for you. We will also pay cash for scrap steel, non-ferrous metal, car bodies and even car batteries at this depot.
The hi-tech machines at Scout Recycling Centre Elizabeth are a result of our study tour in 2013 visiting recycling operations in Denmark, Germany and Iceland to learn about the latest techniques and practice. Two years later Scouts proudly formed a partnership with Envirobank Recycling to introduce 21st century recycling into South Australia.
