You will need this approval if you intend to operate a Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) collection depot.
A collection depot is a facility for the collection and handling of regulated containers, delivered in return for the payment of a refund. Such facilities include reverse vending machines.
Under the CDS, a 10 cent refund is available to consumers for approved empty beverage containers purchased in the Territory on or after 3 January 2012. Empty approved containers must be delivered to an approved collection depot to obtain a refund. The collection depot must deliver the containers to a CDS coordinator to claim the reimbursement of the refund amount.
