WA Christmas Drinks
The WA Branch of the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) invites all members and non-members to join them for drinks on Wednesday, 9 December 2020. This is a great opportunity to reconnect, network and celebrate the end of a challenging year, while enjoying a few refreshments.

All WMRR members are also invited to attend the branch meeting being held prior to drinks, from 4:00-5:00pm.  Here you'll have the opportunity to meet the WA Branch as they wrap-up 2020 and discuss plans for 2021.  Following the meeting we're looking forward to hearing from our guest speaker, the founder of Plastic Free July, Rebecca Prince-Ruiz.
