Packaging and recycling company Visy has signed up Nanny Jan’s Emporium as its first collection point operator for the Victorian Container Deposit Scheme (CDS Vic) in Australia. 

Nanny Jan’s Emporium is located in the north-east Victorian town of Eildon and offers haberdashery, craft supplies, plants, and various gifts.

This location will serve as a drop-off point for the community and tourists who visit the town.

For every eligible can, carton, and bottle people return, they will earn a refund of 10 cents.

Local real estate agent Mark Howard, who helped Nanny Jan’s sign up for the scheme, said: “We are thrilled to be the first to sign up to the Visy Victorian Container Deposit Scheme. Our pristine north-east Victorian town is the gateway to Lake Eildon’s tourist mecca and the Goulburn River which supplies a quarter of Victoria’s irrigation water.

“Many thanks to Jack and the team at Visy who also embraced our vision for the future.”

In April this year, Visy was contracted as a network operator for CDS Vic and the company has been looking for local businesses and non-profits to serve as collection point operators since.

The CDS Vic scheme will create an estimated 215 jobs directly within the network, with another 500 indirect jobs expected to be created across the Victorian economy.

Visy will operate the collection and refund points across the Loddon, Mallee, and Hume regions, as well as the inner north-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
