Transforming Lives and Our Planet

At Recycle4Change (R4C), we’re more than just a recycling initiative and supporter of the Container Deposit Scheme CDS; we’re a driving force for change, a champion of sustainability, and a catalyst for positive transformation. Our mission transcends recycling; it’s about revitalising lives and safeguarding our environment.

As a certified Social Enterprise and registered Charity, R4C is dedicated to reshaping the way we view recycling. We proudly operate the Victorian State Government’s Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), spanning from Geelong to Laverton North in Melbourne’s west, putting us on the forefront of environmental sustainability and community empowerment.

Our core mission is to provide employment and support to individuals with justice system experience, reducing reoffending and creating a safer society through their successful reintegration into the community.

Together, we can forge a world where sustainability, community, and social purpose unite to create a profound impact—one container at a time. Join us in this extraordinary journey of purpose and passion.
