Victorian Waste Management Association hosts one-day workshop    

With the Victorian government’s E-Waste to Landfill Ban starting on July 1, 2019, a workshop is being held to inform attendees about the ban.

The event, hosted by the Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA) will provide delegates with information about the state government public and business campaign, it will look at what compliance looks like and the current services people an access.

VWMA executive officer Mark Smith said many recent events have impacted the waste and resource recovery sector.

“We’ve collaborated with some of our regional partners and two leaders in e-waste management for this event.

“We’re putting it on in response to our members’ feedback and those of the broader sector who are concerned around the lack of information that they have in regard to the incoming e-waste to landfill ban,” he said.

“This event will provide them key pieces of information to prepare them for the ban but also provide them an opportunity to engage with peers, raise issues or concerns and speak directly with some of the government agencies working to implement the state government’s commitment to support e-waste resource recovery,” said Smith.

“By hosting this event in Ballarat – about an hour out of Melbourne – we can ensure regional members get access but also that our metropolitan members can attend.”

The VWMA is partnering with Barwon South West Waste and Resource Recovery Group (WRRG), Grampians Central West WRRG, CMA Ecocycle and ANZRP / Tech Collect.

The event will be held on May 28 at the Mercure Hotel in Ballarat.

VWMA members/delegates from within BSW/GCW region can get tickets for $50 + GST. The costs include morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and workshop materials for the day.
