Community Recycling WA Inc. will operate multiple Containers for Change refund points from 1 October 2020, throughout the South-West Metropolitan area and the Peel Region. A key focus for us is to provide outcomes for the environment, local employment and funding to support the growth of community-based programs.
Containers For Change Scheme
Containers for Change is a 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 and it accounts for 44% of litter.
Did you know?
That’s enough drink containers to line a path from Perth to Broome.
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.
How It Works

Bring your eligible containers to an authorised collection depot
