A group of 23 Australian delegates flew to Nevada for the recent WasteExpo to learn about American technology and developments in the waste industry.
WasteExpo is the largest tradeshow in North America serving the $85 billion solid waste and recycling markets.
Held between 6 and 9 June at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the event was tailored to be relevant to all those working in waste and recycling industries, including private sector, public sector and waste management professionals from all sectors.
Supported by the Queensland association, WRIQ, the delegation was treated to exclusive “back of house tours” with some of Las Vegas’ best known waste management centres covering organic operations, textiles recycling, construction and demolition wastes, and soaps and detergents spaces.
WRIQ CEO Rick Ralph said the American waste management landscape has many parallels with that of Australia, and the visit provided valuable learning opportunities for the attendees.
