The proposed Western Australian container deposit scheme will provide a 10 cent refund on eligible drinks containers between 150 millilitres and three litres. These include soft drinks, water, flavoured milk, beer, mixed alcoholic drinks, sports drinks, and fruit and vegetable drinks less than a litre.

Eligible drinks containers will be accepted for refund at authorised refund points which may include reverse vending machines. The container deposit scheme will also provide an opportunity for charitable and community groups to raise funds through the collection of eligible drinks containers.

Any container deposit scheme needs to balance convenience for consumers in returning containers with the costs of providing the network. Finding this balance is more challenging in remote areas with low populations, and in some circumstances may require tailored collection arrangements to accommodate local requirements.
