Welcome to NWRIC

Waste management is essential to community and environmental protection, while contributing significantly to the Australian economy. It also helps to maintain long term prosperity by returning materials to the economy.

The industry includes companies involved in the waste storage, collection, transfer, handling, sorting, re-processing, re-manufacturing and disposal of residual materials.

The National Waste and Recycling Industry Council (NWRIC or ‘the Council’) advocates for companies directly involved in providing these services.

The Council’s core activity is to proactively engage with all of the industry’s key stakeholders, in order to promote solutions to the legislative and regulatory challenges facing the sector. We advocate for a waste and recycling industry which is fair, safe and sustainable.

In partnership with AWRE, we’ve organised a breakfast with industry leaders. Thursday 31 October - 7 30am until 9 45am. Featuring Matt Kean, Vik Bansal and Rose Read. Don’t miss out.
