ABOUT WRIWA

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.

WRIWA is an affiliate of the National Waste and Recycling Industry Council (NWRIC), the peak national body representing organisations operating within the waste sector.

Where applicable within a Western Australian context and operating environment, WRIWA follows the NWRIC Policy Roadmap to develop local views and positions so that submissions can be developed for changes and reform of waste sector policy and regulations.
