Leading waste and recycling experts will discuss how smartphone apps and other digital tools can help local government and business achieve their waste management and recycling goals at the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo which begins in Sydney on Thursday.

NSW EPA will lead a panel of experts in a seminar debate and discussion at this year’s Expo, into how digital technology is transforming the way we engage, inform, educate and enforce compliance around waste and recycling.

Other leaders of the Australian waste and recycling industry will join NSW EPA at AWRE’s comprehensive two-day seminar program at Sydney Olympic Park, on Thursday and Friday, including Stan Krpan, Sustainability Victoria CEO, and Stephen Holland, Waste Management Association of Australia Operations Manager.
