Do we have an Android app?
Our app is currently only IOS- this was done by a volunteer. We currently don’t have the funds or a volunteer to make an Android app. If you have an android device you can either go to map on our website https://refillnz.org.nz/where-to-refill/ or download the Android Rankers Camping App -which has most of our sites on it – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nz.co.rankers.freecampingnz

We currently supply water bottles in bulk for resale. These are made of stainless steel or reusable durable plastic, and can be cobranded with your company or organisation. Our wonderful supplier donates 10-20% of the wholesale price to RefillNZ https://refillnz.org.nz/bottles/

A RefillNZ station is an organization or business that allows people to come into their premises and refill their water bottles for free. They have our RefillNZ sticker in their window and are on our map.
Do RefillNZ Stations fill up our bottles?
No, staff at RefillNZ Stations are never required to fill up someone’s bottle, facilities should be available for people to fill up their own bottles.

How else can I get involved?
You can volunteer with us to get more businesses and organizations on board. If you are an organisation that wants to encourage refilling, you can start a RefillNZ scheme in your area https://refillnz.org.nz/get-involved/
