Launching in WA on 1 October 2020

Keep Western Australia beautiful with Containers for Change

On 1 October 2020, Containers for Change will launch in Western Australia! 

Containers for Change is our new state-wide container deposit scheme that lets you cash in eligible containers for 10-cents each.

In WA, we use more than 1.3 billion eligible drink containers each year; enough drink containers to line a path from Perth to Broome.

When it comes to recycling, Western Australians will soon have the chance to make real change and earn cash while we do it!

Containers for Change aims to

  • reduce litter and landfill
  • increase recycling
  • create jobs
  • provide opportunities for social enterprise and benefits for community organisations

Hundreds of container Refund Points are planned, with many to be operated by local community groups and social enterprises. The job of setting up the network has begun, and there will be more information provided over the coming months.
