Waste & Recycle 2017 - Call for Papers

Wednesday 13 – Friday 15 September

Crown Towers, Perth

The Waste & Recycle Conference is hosted by the Department of Environment Regulation, Waste Management Association of Australia and Western Australian Local Government Association.  Waste & Recycle 2017 is themed Sorting our waste: valuing it as a resource.  This theme represents our changing view of waste from a discarded product to a resource in its own right and the need to ‘sort’ out what we’re doing with waste.

To support this theme, the Conference Committee is seeking Papers on:

  • Sorting our waste, for example:
    • Source separation
    • Better Practice
    • Product stewardship
    • Education
    • Data to inform decision making
  • Using and valuing waste as a resource, for example:
    • Food waste / FOGO (Food Organics and Garden Organics)
    • Waste to energy  
    • End markets (or alternative markets)
    • Challenges such as recyclability and regulatory regimes
    • Circular economy
    • Options for Commercial & Industrial and Construction & Demolition

To register your interest in presenting visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WR17 - the Call for Papers closes COB Friday 7 April.
