Western Australia Container Deposit Scheme - Prices

The Western Australia Government Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), called “Containers for Change”, will start on 2 June 2020.

The Western Australia Government Container Deposit Scheme (CDS), called “Containers for Change”, will start on 2 June 2020.

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

As a consequence of CDS costs we are writing to customers in Western Australia advising of a price increase of 11.65 cents (excluding GST) per eligible container. This will take effect from 2 June 2020, which is the date the CDS commences.

To determine this additional charge Coca-Cola Amatil took into account:
  • estimates published online (www.warrrl.com.au/industry-partners/) by WA Return Recycle Renew Limited (WARRRL); and
  • advice from WARRRL that the exact CDS cost per container will depend on redemption rates via the chosen redemption channel and container type.
Coca-Cola Amatil supports a well-run, cost-effective container deposit scheme in Western Australia. We are not seeking to make a profit from the CDS – as always, our aim is to keep costs as low as possible for our customers and consumers.

Changes in pricing due to the CDS are unrelated to any regular general market price changes.
