GECA is proud to be a Supporting Partner of the premier business event for the waste, recycling and resource recovery sector, Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE).
In April 2018 the Australian Government announced the Towards 2025 agenda, legislating all single-use packaging needs to be reusable, recyclable or compostable. Globally governments are moving at various speeds, however there is consistent and growing pressure from community and consumer groups to reduce the impact of packaging products ending up as litter or landfill.
This year AWRE is celebrating its 10th anniversary and we would like to share with you some of the exhibitors that have been on the journey with us to find solutions to build a more stable, sustainable and profitable economy.
The horticultural market for compost is huge. In Australia, there are 10,000 fruit and vegetable farms on approximately 400,000ha. At least 120,000ha are used to grow annual crops such as vegetables.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment brings together specialists in urban and regional planning, natural resources, industry, environment, Aboriginal and social housing and regional NSW.
With the help of ICC Sydney, AWRE and Diversified Communications Australia are now leading the way in sustainable event management.
