Key challenges and opportunities facing the waste sector to be discussed

Tackling regulatory barriers and the state of recycling in New South Wales (NSW) are some of the key issues the waste sector is currently facing.

These topics and more, including the state of the container deposit scheme (CDS) in NSW, are being discussed in detail at a conference in NSW on June 13.

The Waste Contractors and Recyclers Association (WCRA) of NSW is hosting the event, which will pack in important discussions over one evening at the Kirribilli Club.

Registration takes place at 3pm, followed by an introduction and welcome note by WCRA executive director Tony Khoury.

Speakers will then lead discussions from 3.30pm until a dinner at 7pm, which gives attendees the opportunity to network.

The speakers on the day include:

  • CEO for Exchange for Change, Peter Bruce, who will speak about the state of CDS in NSW,
  • Bioelektra Group’s Michael Lobos, who will discuss the Shoalhaven City Council awarding a 20-year waste processing contract,
  • A team from Jackson Environment and Planning will discuss energy from waste in the NSW marketplace and tackling regulatory issues,
  • Fire and Rescue NSW’s David Lewis will discuss the Fire and Rescue guidelines proposed for NSW waste facilities,
  • Prince Consulting’s Anne Prince will speak about the state of recycling in NSW.
