Recycling Donations

Donations from Container Deposit Scheme

Melbourne Rowing Club is registered as an eligible beneficiary of container deposit donations from the Victorian Container Deposit Scheme.  You can find out more about it here:

There are three different collections regions, West, North and East.  You will need to download an app from the Apple Store or Google Play for the region (that is closest to you for returning containers).  Once you are registered, you can nominate Melbourne Rowing Club as the beneficiary of donations.  We use these donations to fund specific projects as determined by the Committee from time to time.

Current projects


Our current project is to raise funds for a system of electronic detection,, a rowing instrumentation and telemetry system. This system allows coaches and athletes to quantify improvements in technique and performance, and to optimise rig and equipment.
