An industry association for Western Australia


The Waste and Recycling Industry Association of Western Australia Incorporated was established in 2017.  WRIWA has two broad objectives that it pursues on behalf of its members;

- to achieve best practice environmental outcomes from collection, processing, recycling and disposal of waste
- to ensure markets are fair and transparent, ensuring competition occurs on a "level playing field" that drives value for customers and a fair return on investment for members.

WRIWA members are drawn from private sector operators with direct investment in plant and equipment. Members include the large nationally based waste collection and recycling companies, landfill owners and operators, and state/locally based C&I and C&D collection, processing and recycling companies.

WRIWA is committed to improving the Western Australian waste and recycling industry through the creation and promotion of industry driven policy.
