2019 WARR Awards finalists unveiled
18 October 2019
The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) and Inside Waste magazine are pleased to announce the finalists of the 2019 Waste and Resource Recovery (WARR) Awards!
After two-weeks of intense reviewing and consideration by our ten (10) independent judging panels comprising more than 30 experts from our essential waste and resource recovery industry, we now have a shortlist of three (3) finalists across all ten (10) categories in this year’s awards.
“We received an unprecedented number of nominations this year – 88! It was a fantastic outcome and pleasing to see what players in the industry have been working on and excelling at over the last 12 months, and how they’ve been innovating. We all know that it’s been a challenging two years, but industry continues not just to chug along, but to go above and beyond, and this has really come through in the nominations we received,” WMRR CEO, Ms Gayle Sloan, said.
“The judges certainly didn’t have it easy picking the finalists – it was a tight race. But they did a fantastic job throughout the review process and WMRR and Inside Waste thank the judges for their time and input, and all nominees for entering the Awards. We’d encourage everyone to participate again next year as we should continue to champion the good work that occurs in our sector.”
The winners will be announced at the 2019 WARR Awards and Gala Dinner, which will be held at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney on 14 November 2019. For further details, including reserving your spot at the event, click here.
