Wine bottles and casks, concentrated cordial and household milk containers are not eligible.

The Rotary Club would also like hear from any business, hotel, club, restaurant or school that may wish to donate their eligible containers to Rotary.

Rotary members would be happy to arrange regular collection.

For further information please contact Rotarian Bob Griffiths on 0412 458 443, or any Rotary member.

Members of the public can also donate their 10 cent container refunds to Rotary by picking up a Rotary Return and Earn card from Bendigo Bank, Kendal St Cowra, scanning it at the reverse vending machine in the Woolworths Car park, insert the containers, select the Pay Pal button and the funds will go into the Cowra Rotary Account.

Used car, truck and tractor batteries

The Cowra Rotary club has for several years now been collecting used Car Truck and Tractor batteries.

Used batteries are a considerable risk to the environment and a danger to stock when not safely stored.

By donating your used batteries to Rotary, you will be helping the environment and helping Rotary raise much needed funds for its valuable community work.

In recent years funds have been used to provide the wonderful facilities at Europa Park.

The batteries are fully recycled with every component finding a new life.

Used batteries may be dropped at All Service Motors, Cnr Redfern St and Lachlan St Cowra during business hours Monday – Saturday.

If you have a quantity of batteries on your farm or business premises and you would like Rotary to collect them we are happy to do so.

Please Contact Rotarian Brian Marsh on 0459 574 781 or talk to any Rotarian.
