Last Updated 5 November, 2018.

In order to participate in the “Re.Turn-It Express System” (System), you need to register as a participant (Participant) in the System. You may register by completing the information in the registration form at: express.returnit.com.au. When you have completed registration, we grant you a personal, non-exclusive and non-transferable license (License) to use the System on the terms and conditions set out in these Terms of Use.

We have described how the System works in more detail below. However, it comprises websites (www.returnit.com.auand express.returnit.com.au) (the Site) and kiosks (Kiosks) located at collection points where you can drop off your containers. Your License entitles you to use the Site and the Kiosks and to enter the collection points to drop off your containers and ultimately to recover the deposits on those containers in accordance with the terms and conditions set out in these Terms of Use.

Before you register, you must acknowledge that you have read these Terms of Use. Your checking of the checkbox below confirming that you have read these Terms of Use constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not understand any of these terms, please contact us at support@returnit.com.aubefore proceeding. We will post all modifications of these Terms of Use on the Site. Please check them whenever you access and use the Site. You can tell when this Agreement was last modified by checking the “last updated” date.

Ability to Enter into this Agreement

In order to enter into this Agreement you must be fully able and competent to enter into the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and able to abide by and comply with this Agreement. If you accept this Agreement, you expressly represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it.

Minors
We recognise that minors will be regular users of the System. Generations of Australian children have earned pocket money from collecting deposits on returnable containers. If you are under the age of 18, we ask you to tell us your age when you register, as we may take additional steps to protect you and the refunds you earn. If you are 13 or under, please ask a parent or guardian to register on your behalf.

How the Re.Turn-It Express System Works

The first step in using the System is to register at express.returnit.com.au. Registration enables you to drop containers at convenient local collection points. You do not have to be registered to drop containers at our major Depot Collection Points. You can find a listing of our collection points (including Depot Collection Points) at www.actcds.com.au.

Upon registration on the Site, the System creates a unique on-line account for you. Your email address is your unique identifier which allows you to access certain areas of the Site. Your phone number is used when dropping off containers ata Kiosk at one of our collection points. Please make sure that the containers you drop off qualify under the ACT Container Deposit Scheme (ACT CDS) – a detailed list of acceptable products and their deposit value is listed at www.actcds.com.au.

Collection points may be administered directly by Re.Turn-It or be located in independent stores. When you log on to a Kiosk at a collection point, the Kiosk will generate bar coded bag labels that are linked to your on-line account. You may print up to four bag labels at any one Re.Turn-It collection point per day. You then apply a bar coded sticker to each bag ensuring it is readable. Each bag requires its own sticker and must be a lightweight transparent bag. The bag must be clear so the contents are visible. It is your responsibility to ensure the bag is securely sealed. If a bag does not meet these requirements, your account may not be credited.

Once you drop off your labelled bag(s), they will be sorted and delivered to a Re.Turn-IT Depot where it will be counted, processed, sorted, batched and sold. We will notify you by email that your bags have been counted. We will credit your on-line account, or will cause your on-line account to be credited, within three business days with the full posted deposit amount on all beverage containers qualifying under the ACT CDS.

We use our computerised management information system to verify the counts of the beverage containers performed by Re.Turn-It’s system, staff, employee and collection point network. All counts are final, and you agree to abide by the count and waive any and all rights you may have to dispute any count. On the day that the count is undertaken at one of our depots, your Express account is credited at 9.30pm that evening (or another time we may specify from time-to-time in updated versions of these Terms of Use). Upon your request, and subject to the minimum transfer amount, the funds in your account will be paid out via electronic transfer to your nominated Australian bank account. When you make a request for the funds in your account on the Site to be transferred to your nominated bank account, the transfer will be processed by us on the same day if the request is received by 3pm on a business day (or another time we may specify from time-to-time in updated versions of these Terms of Use). Otherwise, the transfer will be processed by Re.Turn It on the next business day and by the banks within 3 business days. We reserve the right, at any time in our sole discretion, to make changes to the redemption options available on the Site. A minimum transaction amount is required before funds can be transferred by electronic transfer to your nominated bank account. There are no cash payments issued at Re.Turn-It Express Collection Points. You may email or call us Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm to discuss any concerns or issues with your on-line account.

If we believe your account has become inactive, we will attempt to contact you using the details on your account. If we do not receive a response and there is no further activity on your account, we will donate the funds to a registered charity of our choice after a period of three months from our last attempt to contact you.
