Containers for Change
On 1 October 2020 Western Australia will introduce the Containers for Change scheme, a state-wide container deposit scheme that lets you cash in eligible containers for 10 cents each.
Beverage containers currently account for 44% of all litter by volume in WA. The aim of the scheme is to reduce litter, increase recycling and create new opportunities for the community to participate in environment protection activities.
The community will be able to receive or donate the 10 cent refund they obtain by dropping off eligible containers at the approved locations.
