In WA, we use more than 1.3 billion eligible drink containers each year and it accounts for 44% of litter.

That’s enough drink containers to lap WA 6 times!

Western Australia is the fifth state or territory to adopt a container deposit scheme, following the lead of South Australia, Northern Territory, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and most recently, Queensland.
