Countdown to Waste Expo Australia

Waste Expo Australia 2023 is one week away, with thousands expected to attend the two-day conference from 25–26 October at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

With 100+ exhibitors and 60+ conference speakers over four stages, the event is set to showcase new innovations in the sector and discuss greener, cleaner and circular approaches to waste management.

The conference will focus on the theme of “Advancing Towards Sustainable Resource Recovery”, addressing topics across four streams: Local Government and Policy, Commercial Demolition and Commercials and Industrial (CD&CI), Circular Economy and Waste Innovation, and Waste to Energy/Energy from Waste.

Day one will kick off with conference keynotes, spotlighting the Hon. Ingrid Stitt, Victorian Minister for Energy; Tony Circelli, CEO Recycling Victoria; Lee Miezis, CEO EPA Victoria; and Matt Genever, Interim CEO Sustainability Victoria. The conference will then split into the four streams, with networking drinks to end the day at South Wharf.

Matt Genever of Sustainability Victoria said he’s looking forward to sharing an update on the organisation’s progress towards its ultimate challenge: a net zero emission circular economy in Victoria.

Sally Williams, former Brand Power presenter and sustainability advocate, will be MC of the Local Government Stream for the two-day conference. She will guide the discussion across topics that have the potential to make a real difference in communities across Australia, from landfills to composting, recycling and empowering communities to manage waste.

The conference has strong industry support, including from the Victorian Waste Management Association (VWMA). The VWMA breakfast being held on the first day of the conference is scheduled to maximise networking opportunities for industry professionals.

“We’re eagerly awaiting Waste Expo Australia next week, from the start of our networking breakfast right through to the conclusion of the conference and exhibition. There’s plenty to learn, and we have plenty to share with the industry through connecting,” said Ken Dickens, VWMA President.

The exhibition component of the event will feature 98 international and domestic suppliers to the waste management industry, including Bucher Municipal, EEA Group, Repurpose It, Komatsu, Eldan Recycling and TOMRA Collections.

With a spectrum of representation from waste services, material recovery facilities, facilities management, landfill, government and consultancy, the event is a suitable destination for both industry education and practical sourcing of solutions.

Co-located with All-Energy Australia, Waste Expo Australia is a valuable destination for suppliers, consultants and government representatives alike.
