Coca-Cola Amatil is increasing its prices for customers in Western Australia by 11.65 cents per eligible container after the state imposed a container deposit scheme.
The scheme, called “Containers for Change”, will come into effect on 1 October. CCA said its price increase would cover the 10-cent deposit, as well as handling, administration and scheme compliance costs. The company said it would start applying the price increase on product deliveries in Western Australia from 5 October.
A statement from CCA said: “Coca-Cola Amatil supports a well-run, cost-effective container deposit scheme in Western Australia. We are not seeking to make a profit from the CDS – as always, our aim is to keep costs as low as possible for our customers and consumers.”
