VWMA State Conference returns

VWMA State Conference returns

This year’s Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA) State Conference will be returning to the Yarra Valley Lodge 30-31 July.

The conference will provide a forum for business, local and state government to discuss issues relevant to the waste and resource recovery sector.

VWMA Executive Officer Mark Smith said the two day program had been crafted to address key challenges for the sector including EPA updates, legal insights into regulatory changes, labor and overseas workers and technology updates.

Additionally, attendees will hear from Victorian Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio, who will present on the Victorian Government’s waste and resource recovery agenda.

“We received such positive feedback to our conference last year that related to the tangible benefits our conference offered their business, either by engaging with government officials, networking and connecting with people to provide solutions to their challenges,” Mr Smith said.

The conference will also feature an assessment of Victoria’s infrastructure needs and one month check ins of prescribed industrial waste tickets and the e-waste ban.

“There will also be information about the new Circular Economy Issues Paper, as well as workshops covering grants and urban planning,” Mr Smith said.

“This event is opened to members and non-members, basically anyone working in, with or for the sector would benefit in attending.”

Other speakers include Choice Energy CEO Christopher Dean, Infrastructure Victoria Resource Recovery and Recycling Project Director Elissa McNamara and National Waste and Recycling Industry Council CEO Rose Reed.
