The Council

The Council is composed national waste management companies along with State based affiliates which represent the interests of the more than 500 small waste management businesses in Australia. The structure of the Council is designed to maximise industry representation and the capacity to build consensus.


The NWRIC works to develop Australia’s waste management industry. Key to this mission is a commitment to high standards in regard to policy development, industry representation and transparency.

The Council’s Charter outlines the rules and best practises which enable it to maintain these standards.
