About Containers for Change

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 state-wide container deposit scheme that lets you cash in eligible containers for 10-cents each.

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.
