People keen to get a 10 cent refund are putting an average 37,000 cans and bottles a day into Orange's two machines.
Government figures show the kiosk at Woolworths north Orange has received 7.5 million items since it opened in January 2018 while the Flipout machine has received 2.3 million since it was opened last August.
The north Orange machine is averaging 20,923 items a day while the other machine is averaging 16,073.
Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton visited Orange on Monday to outline the success of the scheme statewide.
"Here in the seat of Orange we have had some great success as well," she said
"The kiosk we have here [at Flipout] has returned over 2.3 million items. It has been a massive success in reducing litter in our environment.
"Not only is that great for our environment in that we are taking those containers away from our parks, sporting grounds and playgrounds but we are also allowing people to donate to local charitable causes," she said.
"Orange Public School I understand is one of the charity partners for people to be able to make the choice to donate their 10 cent deposit."
She said it was possible more machines might be added.
"There are four reverse vending machines in the seat of Orange, there are two over the counter collection points, there is always more we can do because we know there is very strong community demand," she said.
