The objective of Roving Refills is to change the way we access and consume products that are unnecessarily packaged, usually in plastic containers. By joining the growing BYO container movement, we hope to reduce waste created by single-use bottles/containers and conserve the natural resources used to make them. We hope to provide an affordable alternative to packaged detergents, cleaners and personal care products.
Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19 we have made the decision to cease public roves for the time being, but we very much would like to continue reducing our waste and refilling our communities recycled bottles, so we are offering a drop off system in Newcomb - Drop off your box of clean dry containers with your shopping list, we will fill, disinfect and leave to be picked up. Alternatively if you are self-isolating or unwell we can offer a come-to-you service in some cases. Or if you and your neighbours are in need of a few things we can organise a private local rove to your area. Please get in touch to organise or if you have any questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these changing times. Stay well.
Roving Refills Geelong operates as a mobile vendor. Visits to private commercial, school, office or community group car parks are also available.
An hourly fee may apply for commercial events/sites, but no fee for council, community, educational or school events.
Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to set up a Rove in your community.
