The City of Kwinana is collecting containers to donate to local organisations, schools and sporting groups who are fundraising through the Containers for Change initiative.
Containers for Change is the new state-wide container deposit scheme that allows residents to cash in eligible containers for 10 cents each. Most aluminum, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard drink containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible.
Mayor Carol Adams said the Containers for Change initiative encourages good recycling practices and helps the environment.
“The City’s first donation has gone to the Year 6 class at Bertram Primary School who are fundraising for their school camp to Woodman Point in 2021.”
“The students at Bertram Primary School have raised money by placing blue bins around the school to collect empty drink containers at recess and lunch time as well as asking their families to donate their containers,” she said.
“Containers for Change is a great initiative and the City is happy to help our community participate in this program,” said Mayor Adams.
