All approved containers will have one of the following approved 10 cents refund markings on the label:
- "10c refund at SA/NT collection depots in State/Territory of purchase"; or
- "10c refund at collection depots when sold in NT".
It is an offence under the Container Deposit Scheme for a retailer to sell regulated containers that have not been approved for sale in the NT.
