As the Coordinator appointed by the State Government to deliver WA’s container deposit scheme, Containers for Change, WARRRL is inviting interested community groups, charities, social enterprises, not-for-profits, service organisations and businesses to apply to become a Refund Point; and/or to express interest in becoming a Logistics and/or Processing Provider.
Throughout August 2019 WARRRL will be travelling across Western Australia to provide information about the different ways interested organisations can participate in Containers for Change.
Find out if there’s an Information Session near you and register your attendance.
An important part of the Scheme is the establishment and operation of Refund Points across the State, to accept the return of eligible beverage containers and facilitate customer refunds of 10c per eligible container.
The role of a Refund Point includes:
Collecting eligible containers deposited by members of the public and charity organisations.
Counting and sorting of containers returned.
Facilitate customer refunds of 10c per eligible container returned.
Connecting with the community to ensure awareness and understanding of the Scheme.
Logistics and Processing Providers play an integral part of the Scheme, transporting, verifying and processing containers collected at Refund Points, prior to recycling.
Logistics Providers will be required to have at a minimum:
Vehicles capable of transporting bulk material and Collection Infrastructure (such as various sizes of wheelie bins, cages, wool bales and skips).
Experience and ongoing compliance with Chain of Responsibility and the Heavy Vehicle National Legislation.
Experience with the use of Transport Management Systems and associated reporting.
Processing Providers will be required to have at a minimum:
Appropriate processing equipment (such as a horizontal baler).
Collection Infrastructure (such as various sizes of wheelie bins, cages, wool bales and skips) to facilitate transport of Containers.
Weighbridge and / or industrial scales.
Register to receive further information and express your interest in becoming a Provider here.
Expressions of Interest close 12pm Monday, 2 September 2019.
Donation Points allow the general public, community and organisations to donate their containers as a means of fundraising.
Charities, community groups, sporting groups and the like may also wish to participate in the scheme as a Donation Point.
To do so, it’s important that organisations have the infrastructure to accept donated containers from the public. An example of a Donation Point is a cage in the carpark of the local Scouts Hall or sports club. Donation Points do not offer refunds. Donation Point operators may partner with local Refund Point(s) to acquire needed infrastructure and assistance in transporting containers to Refund Points, and to receive refunds.
Donation Points do not require an application or tender.

Information regarding Donation Points will be available closer to Scheme commencement, 2 June 2020.
