With an estimated 67 million tonnes of waste generated by Australians every year* (and growing), the waste and resource recovery strategies of public and private sector organisations are critical, both from an environmental and public health perspective as well as an economic one.
Australia’s $1 billion national strategy to transform the waste and recycling industry will fundamentally change the way Australia looks at waste, grow the economy and protect the environment with the goal of reaching a national resource recovery target of 80% by 2030. The imperative to modernise infrastructure, technology and operations whilst bringing industry and community together has never been greater.
The Waste & Resource Strategy Summit 2023 brings together all the key stakeholders in the waste sector from local councils, government authorities, private enterprise and academics to examine the necessary collaboration, investment and technology to ensure an efficient, sustainable future for public and private sector waste management and resource recovery organisations.
