Kingsway City & Greenwood Village home to WA’s first self-serve ‘Containers for Change’ kiosksNovember 2023
The Cook Government has rolled out three brand new ‘Containers for Change’ self-serve kiosks across three shopping centres in the Perth metropolitan area as park of National Recycling Week.
Kingsway City and Greenwood Village, both managed by Lease Equity, alongside Westfield’s Whitford City are home to the first three of 20 kiosks that are to be opened in WA over the next 6 months.
The launch at Kingsway City was lead by Minister for Environment and Climate Action Reece Whitby, as well as WA Return Recycle Renew Ltd CEO Tim Cusack and TOMRA VP of Business Development and Public Affairs Chris Gingell.
The kiosks, which have been created in partnership with TOMRA, aim to improve access and convenience for all Western Australians by creating return locations that form part of shoppers daily or weekly routines. Shoppers will have the ability to use the new self-serve kiosks to return their eligible 10c containers, then choose to redeem their refund as a voucher, via a bank transfer, or donate to a charitable cause.
“Lease Equity strive to help the environment and implement green initiatives at our retail and commercial assets. We’re proud to partner with Tomra to roll out the Containers for Change self-service recycling kiosks at a number of our centres starting with launch of the first permanent recycling kiosks at Kingsway City Shopping Centre and Greenwood Village. The introduction of these recycling stations aligns with Kingsway City and Greenwood Village’s sustainable direction for the centres and enhancing the convenience offering for their local communities.”

The Kingsway City self-serve kiosk has already proven its success, with just over 32,000 containers recycled in the 10-day lead up to its grand opening.
