The number of containers redeemed in the April to June 2013 quarter has increased by over 5 million on the same period in 2012. Figure 1 indicates a spike in the January to March 13 quarter with an unusually high amount of containers redeemed. This was due to communities redeeming all of their stored containers as there was a perception of uncertainty surrounding the future of the scheme at the time of the Federal Court ruling on the Mutual Recognition Act Figure 2: Collection Depot Redemptions by Material Type Of the containers redeemed in the April to June 2013 quarter, 56.29% of all containers redeemed were aluminium, 24.15% were glass and 15.58% were PET (see Figure 2).
