Source Separation Systems at AWRE:

In 2023, the Source Separation Systems team had exhibited at the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo where they showcased their innovations to 2000+ visitors. Responding to the question asked by the Waste Management Review, “Why are events like AWRE important to the industry?”, Peter Cruwys shared

“These events are not just about promoting products and services.

Certainly, we do get to connect with new customers. Deciding to engage our team is an easy decision when you can see and feel the quality of our products.

However, the real value in these events is the ongoing discussions that occurs with existing customers and industry leaders. Getting together outside of formal structures to talk with such a diverse group is a unique opportunity. Challenges are shared and connections made which often form the basis for future innovations. It’s our shared passion for change and willingness to work together which will see the industry continue to progress.”
– Peter Cruwys, Managing Director

Taking a well earnt break from house-to-house distributions, the team will be keen to discuss the benefits of various caddy designs, the debate about compostable bags, tips on community education and how our unique purpose build FOGO Distribution software sets our programs apart.
