Bedford has partnered with Direct Collect, a social enterprise that is recycling for good.

Direct Collect is a bin collection service providing homes and businesses with a dedicated light blue bin for 10¢ refundable bottles, cans and containers with the choice to deposit or donate your refund to a cause that's close to your heart.

As a Participating Partner, you can select Bedford as your charity and your collection refund will be directly donated to us!

Your small change can make a big difference… by selecting Bedford, you will be assisting in amplifying our purpose of supporting people with disability to live the life they choose.

It costs you nothing and gives you convenience – with a free clean bin that gets dropped off and then collected from your house on a day you choose.

It feels good to do both social AND environmental good!

It's easy to get started:

1. Sign up online and select Bedford as a participating partner

2. You'll receive a Direct Collect bin delivered to your home, and you can fill it with 10c cans, bottles and containers

3. When it's full, request a collection and your refund will be donated to Bedford!
