ACOR welcomes new President

Queensland to review waste strategy and levy

The Australian Council of Recycling (ACOR) has unveiled a refreshed Board, including the appointment of Downer’s Michael Jackson as President.

Jackson takes the leadership reins from Peter Tamblyn who has served as ACOR President since 2019. During Tamblyn’s tenure, he oversaw the development of some of ACOR’s key initiatives, including an accreditation program for recyclers and Recycle Mate. Peter Tamblyn will remain as a director on the Board.

Jackson has been on the ACOR Board since June 2021 and has a background in strategy and recycling markets.

Three new members to the Board have also been welcomed – Elizabeth Kasell from RED Group, Nerida Mortlock from SmarterLite and Nathan Lopez from Global Renewables.

ACOR will farewell Envirobank’s Narelle Anderson, who will be stepping down after 6 years of service. Anderson had previously served as Board Secretary.

ACOR’s Vice President, David Singh, and Treasurer Jim Fairweather, have been re-appointed, along with current members of the Board.

ACOR says the refreshed Board will have a focus on driving policy platform, ensuring resource recovery, recycling and remanufacturing play a leading role in Australia’s circular economy.
