WA Container Deposit Scheme

Our container deposit scheme – Containers for Change – starts on Tuesday, 2 June 2020.

Western Australians will be able to take their empty beverage containers to a refund point and receive 10 cents for every eligible container returned.

The scheme aims to:

  • increase recovery and recycling of empty beverage containers;
  • reduce the number of empty beverage containers that are disposed of as litter or to landfill;
  • ensure that first responsible suppliers of beverage products take product stewardship responsibility;
  • provide opportunities for social enterprise and benefits for community organisations;
  • create opportunities for employment; and
  • complement existing collection and recycling activities for recyclable waste.

Containers for Change is run by WA Return Recycle Renew – a not-for-profit company responsible for establishing the collection network and managing its day-to-day operation.

Visit the Containers for Change website for refund point locations and consumer information.
