On 1 October 2020, Containers for Change will launch in Western Australia!

Containers for Change is our new state-wide container deposit scheme that lets you cash in eligible drink containers for 10 cents each.

In WA, we use more than 1.3 billion eligible drink containers each year; enough drink containers to circumnavigate WA six times every year.

When it comes to recycling, Western Australians will soon have the chance to make real change and earn cash while we do it.

By recycling through Containers for Change you help to:

Reduce litter and landfill
Increase recycling
Create jobs
Provide opportunities for social enterprise and benefits for community organisations

Where to Return - The Esperance depot is at 
19 Effie Turner Drive, Esperance WA
Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri 8am - 4pm
Saturday 8am - 2pm

Fundraising - Containers for Change provides exciting and easy opportunities for groups and charities to raise much-needed funds. Turn your containers into change!
