Pick-up service offered for Containers For Change

CQ Recycling and Recovery- Bundaberg is offering residents door-to door service for Container For Change pick-ups.

CQ Recycling and Recovery- Bundaberg is offering residents a pick-up service for their Containers For Change items in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Owner Mary-Jane Vickers said the new service would start as early as next week in a bid to keep the scheme available to residents and employees at the organisation within a job.

“We have experienced a sharp decline in recycling products being returned to our depots,” she said.

“We have a large number of people working in our three depots and we are looking at implementing alternatives to ensure we keep our staff gainfully employed.”

Mary-Jane said while the depots in the region were still open, there had been a decline in foot traffic due to residents taking on self-isolation measures.

She said to help out residents who relied on the extra change made from the service, a new business model was needed.

“Most of our customers are very eager to comply with social distancing requirements and non-essential travel and therefore are missing out on this potential income,” Mary-Jane said.

“We have a large range of customers and many rely on our service to provide a few extra dollars every week.

“CQ Recycling & Recovery is not only determined to maintain employment for our team, but we are also willing to change our service to meet the current situation.”

Mary-Jane said the pick-up service would work the same way normal collections were processed.

“This is predominantly a bag collection service with a payment via the containers for change Scheme ID- direct to their bank account,” she said.

“We will accept all eligible 10 cent recycling containers.”

Mary-Jane said she wanted to praise the community for their continued support during this time.

“We would like to thank all our customers,” she said.

“If anyone is interested in our pick-up service, please message us on Facebook or directly on 0431 925 929.”
