Queensland Container Refund Scheme - prices

The Queensland Government Container Refund Scheme (CRS), called “Containers for Change,” will start on 1 November 2018.

The Queensland Government Container Refund Scheme (CRS), called “Containers for Change,” will start on 1 November 2018.

“Containers for Change” imposes costs on the supply of eligible containers into the QLD market, to cover the 10-cent deposit as well as handling, administration and scheme compliance.

As a consequence of these CRS costs we have written to customers in Queensland advising of a price increase of 10.38 cents per eligible container, excluding GST. This will take effect from 1 November 2018, which is the date the Scheme commences.
 
To determine this additional charge Coca-Cola Amatil took into account:
  • Estimates published online (ContainerExchange.com.au) by Container Exchange (QLD) Limited.
  • Advice from Container Exchange that exact costs per container will depend on redemption rates via the chosen redemption channel and container type.
Coca-Cola Amatil supports a cost-effective, well-run container refund scheme in Queensland. We are not seeking to make any profit from the CRS - as always, our aim is to keep costs as low as possible for customers and consumers.
 
Changes in pricing due to the CRS are also unrelated to any regular general market price changes.
