Containers for Change

The Western Australian State Government has introduced Containers for Change to help reduce litter, improve recycling rates, create new business and employment opportunities across the State, and provide a new way for community organisations and charities to raise money.

From 1 October 2020 Western Australia’s new container deposit scheme that will see millions of bottles and cans diverted from landfill each year will commence.

Western Australia Return Recycle Renew (WARRRL) is the not-for-profit organisation created to establish and run the Containers for Change scheme in Western Australia. WARRRL focus on reducing container litter, increasing recycling efforts and helping communities by encouraging social enterprise and creating jobs.

Refund points have been established in every region across the State, from the Kimberley to the Great Southern. Refund point locations and operating hours can be found here.

All information on the eligible containers and how you can recycle with Containers for Change can be found here.

There are four types of refund points in WA where you can return eligible containers. The best one for you could depend on how many containers you’re returning and how you would like to receive your refund. Click here for information on the various refund points.
