After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), talking to the industry and consulting with our partners, we have made the difficult decision that the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE) will no longer take place on 26 – 27 August 2020.
In response to China’s National Sword, Australia’s Government’s agreed to establish a sustainable path for Australia’s recyclable waste. With regards to packaging, Ministers agreed to reduce the amount of waste generated, to make it easier to recycle products and set a target to make 100% of packaging in Australia reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
Recycling contracts in Australia are under threat and a crisis is looming after China implemented its National Sword Policy on January 1, 2018, the question remains, what now?
The Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) at Sydney’s Darling Harbour is over for another year and at the end of the two days, visitors and exhibitors left with an increased level of optimism about the future.
The first day of the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) at Sydney’s Darling Harbour has wrapped up with important discussions held over two stages and both visitors and exhibitors excited for what lies ahead tomorrow.
