Inquiry into waste management and recycling industries commences

An inquiry into Australia’s waste management and recycling industries has commenced by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Industry, Innovation, Science and Resources.

The inquiry will target innovative solutions in these sectors, including looking at industrial, commercial and domestic waste; waste in waterways and oceans; landfill reduction; and other related matters.

The committee will focus on opportunities presented by waste materials, including energy production, innovative recycling approaches and export opportunities, and to also consider current impediments to innovation.

Individuals and organisations are invited to make submissions, which can be lodged online via the committee’s website or emailed directly to the committee secretariat.

Submissions should be lodged by 31 January 2020
