A networking event focused on networking within the waste and recycling industry will be held in Sydney in August.

The Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) will run from 29-30 August at the ICC in Sydney's Darling Harbour.

The AWRE will be open to the NSW market for businesses and professionals to connect and create opportunities.

The aim of the show is to provide a platform for discovering new connections, solutions, and strategies to build a more stable, sustainable, and profitable economy, according to organisers. 

It will combine a wide product showcase with a free-to-attend education program.

“With new and changing regulations and the China import ban turning Australia’s waste and recycling industry on its head, AWRE couldn’t come at a better time for industry professionals who are looking to improve their waste disposal and resource recovery,” Andrew Lawson, AWRE event manager, says.

“With current market challenges as they are, this year’s event is set to be the most important waste management expo ever.”
