The Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA) is pleased to present a workshop on Transforming waste and recycling services in local councils for the 21st Century, facilitated by Helen Millicer from One Planet Consulting.

Councils are the cornerstone in coordinating and delivering waste and recycling services in Australia. Great strides have been made in recent decades, however, so much is still rooted in the 20th century and our recycling rates have plateaued.

Challenges and opportunities we face include slowing global economy, falling price for recyclables, severe weather, carbon emissions and hybrid vehicles.

The waste sector remains focused on waste, landfills and risk management, with only tiny incremental improvements. We continue to see material collected as ‘waste’ not as ‘resources’ and with no end market in mind. Without changing our approach this system will remain linear with recycling around 50% for decades.

This innovative workshop will cover techniques to maximise resource recovery and new technologies and the steps you can take to transform your services for the 21st century.

It will address strategy, KPIs, who you recruit, your partners, priorities and contract opportunities. We will move away from ‘business as usual’ to integrating foremost thinking and emerging technologies.
