The Young Professionals (YPs) working group was formed to provide a forum for career development and networking for young professionals working, or seeking work, in the waste management and resource recovery industry.

Objectives of the working group are:

  • To increase the skills, knowledge and experience of young professionals
  • To provide opportunities for young professionals and facilitate career development
  • To empower young professionals to take an active role in the industry through WMRR

The YPs do this by:

  • Promoting opportunities for increased training, mentorship and knowledge sharing
  • Providing tools and resources
  • Organising networking events and catered conference programs
  • Working to provide enhanced benefits for students and YPs through their WMRR membership

Meetings are generally held each month and teleconference facilities can be provided for members in regional areas.
