Containers for Change

Let’s get green Newman!

We’re excited to hear that the Shire of East Pilbara will be opening a 10c Refund Point in Newman on the 1 October 2020 with Containers for Change.

Containers for Change is our new state-wide container deposit scheme that will give you the opportunity to make a real change and earn cash while you do it.

The initiative is all about reducing litter and landfill, increasing opportunities to recycle, creating jobs and providing opportunities for social enterprises and benefits for our community organisations.
