Depots open

CONTAINERS For Change will launch its Fremantle, Melville and Cockburn sites on October 1 as WA adopts its long-awaited container refund scheme.

People will be able to cash in eligible drink containers for 10 cents each, or they can build up points to earn a retail voucher.

CFC says West Australians consume 1.3 billion drink containers every year, equating to 2,000 a minute.

All materials get recycled into products such as airplane wings, construction equipment, and even new bottles.
