ABOUT THE 2019 WASTE & RECYCLE CONFERENCE

    The Waste & Recycle Conference will once again be held at Crown Towers, Perth from 25-26 September 2019 with tours being hosted on 27 September. The Conference theme this year is ‘Whose WARR is it anyway?’

    Often responsibility for waste avoidance or management is put back to the individual and the only focus is what you personally can do to reduce your waste.  While individual action does have its place, all tiers of Government, producers, manufacturers and retailers need to ensure a system is in place that makes it easy to manage waste.  The theme for this years’ Waste & Recycle Conference has been chosen to identify the multiple roles and responsibilities that exist in waste management.  We need to acknowledge that there is responsibility for Government, manufacturers, producers and consumers and the community and that we need to work together to end the WARR on Waste.

    The Conference, hosted by the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR), Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER), and Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA), is still the leading waste and resource recovery event in Western Australia.
