Where the industry meets to transform Australia’s waste management processes.

Australia is responsible for 74 million tonnes of waste on a yearly basis with a recycling rate of only 60 per cent. However, as all levels of government and industry work together to implement projects and provide funding to manage waste and protect the environment, the way we approach the country’s waste crisis is constantly shifting.

Outlined in the Australian Government’s 2021-22 Budget, there are a number of actions to drive a multi-million-dollar transformation of Australia’s waste and recycling industry under the National Waste Policy Action Plan, aiming to improve infrastructure, increase recycling rates, tackle food and organic waste, and support better waste management in larger sectors such as manufacturing.

Waste Expo Australia is returning to Melbourne this October as an in-person event at an important time in the industry to showcase and educate about different methods of managing waste and recycling.

This free-to-attend exhibition and conference is the country’s largest gathering of waste management and resource recovery professionals, hosting an exhibition with more than 100 leading suppliers, including Applied Machinery, Boss Attachments, Caterpillar, Garwood, HSR Southern Cross, Pact Group, KOR Equipment Solutions, Lincom Group, STG Global, Toro Waste Equipment and Tomra.

With the conference agenda to be announced in September, the program will have more than 70 expert speakers across two days covering critical topics impacting the future of waste and recycling in Australia, key industry actions and insights from across policy and regulation, plus trends and case studies with practical and tangible solutions from innovators shaping the future direction for Australia.

“Waste Expo Australia is all about collaboration, and this year, we’re providing an opportunity to bring the industry together face-to-face. Our premier event is for businesses to innovate and transform their operations not just through the wide range of solutions on the exhibition floor, but also through practical information and insights at our high-calibre conference.There is no other event in Australia that gives you access to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry and do business with leading suppliers for free,” Robby Clark, Portfolio Director at Waste Expo Australia, said.
