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 now have the chance to make real change and earn cash while we do it!
Containers for Change is a new state-wide container deposit scheme that lets you cash in eligible containers for 10-cents each. Businesses, community groups, schools and charities are encouraged to apply to have their eligible containers collected by the City.
By registering for this service, the City’s Waste team will deliver bins and cages to collect the containers in and will arrange collection. The containers will be counted and processed at the City’s new refund point located at Fremantle Recycling Centre.
Containers for Change aims to:
- reduce litter and landfill
- increase recycling
- create jobs
- provide opportunities for social enterprise and benefits for community organisations
- help raise funds for the Fremantle community.
Registering is easy! Simply complete the registration form and the City’s Waste team will be in touch to arrange delivery of your new collection bins.
