Port Stephens Koalas has partnered with TOMRA Collection Solutions and the Return & Earn recycling scheme in a great new fundraising campaign.

You can now donate at any Return & Earn reverse vending machine (RVM) in New South Wales with the new myTOMRA app – right through to February 2022.

This is a “world first” innovative source of fundraising – and we’re excited to be part of it.

To register, download the myTOMRA app To donate, scan the barcode – you’ll find us under “Charities” – then recycle your cans, bottles and small drink cartons.

The app allows you to view all your donations; access tax-deductible donations receipts; and follow “live” the progress of the fundraising campaign.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund the purchase of a much needed x-ray dental plate to accurately x-ray facial injuries; and an opthalmoscope to examine eye retina and other eye-related injuries and illnesses a koala may have.  This hospital equipment will be vital to the future treatment of the koalas that come into our care.

To help us reach our campaign goal, please download the myTOMRA app and donate at your nearest Return & Earn RVM in New South Wales.
