Proposed regulatory amendment to support implementation of the Container Deposit Scheme.
The State Government is establishing a Container Deposit Scheme for Western Australia to encourage greater recycling of beverage containers.
While primarily an Environment, Water and Regulation portfolio initiative, there are a number of planning considerations associated with the development of the scheme and its implementation.
The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) released a position statement which sets out how container deposit scheme infrastructure should be considered and assessed within the State’s planning system.
More recently, to assist with the rollout of associated infrastructure for container refund points, amendments to the Planning and Development (Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015 are being proposed.
Submissons closed 5pm Friday 7 February 2020.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
