2021 AUSTRALIAN LANDFILL AND TRANSFER STATIONS CONFERENCE
As part of WMRR’s commitment to leading the sector and delivering high-quality, learning events and conferences, we will be hosting the 2021 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Conference (#ALTS) at Doltone House, Pyrmont from 8-10 June.
Landfills and transfer stations play an integral role in the waste management industry, providing avenues for materials aggregation and separation, resource recovery, and final disposal, as well as being vital in times of natural disaster.
Managing waste in accord with the waste management hierarchy, including the disposal of residual waste to modern landfills and transfer stations, is an essential service. Even at the highest levels of resource recovery in a circular economy, there will be a continuing need to dispose of some residual waste to landfill (considered as leakage under the circular economy model).
Landfills and transfer stations in modern waste management systems are vital to our industry’s success, playing a fundamental role in protecting human health and the environment, both:
• in safely managing residual waste flows within the economy; and
• providing a home for waste during periods of service and economic disruption and post disasters and emergencies.
Continued improvement and innovation in the design, operation, regulation, and safety of these facilities are all paramount to the services they offer, and will drive future growth areas where services can be expanded, and efficiencies gained. The 2021 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Conference will offer a forum to share knowledge and discuss opportunities, pathways, and models to drive that improvement and innovation, and we invite you to join the conversation.
