ISWA cooperation conference: Landfill and Transfer Stations

The 5th Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations Conference & Expo: Essential infrastructure for now and into the future is the 5th event in the series of conferences hosted by the National Landfill Division of the Waste Management Association of Australia (WMAA). In 2013, with the conference being presented in cooperation with the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), the event will also be open to an international audience.


The focus of the 2013 conference is to draw out experiences from industry and government that demonstrate that landfills and transfer stations are essential infrastructure for achieving integrated waste management for today’s society, as well as for future generations. Modern waste managers have to deal with a mix of changing legislation and guidelines, various incentives, disincentives and barriers, extremes of weather and regulation, and existing operational issues to manage, such as leachate, landfill gas, dust, odours, storm water, etc.

Conference activities include:

  • Keynote and platform presentations
  • Social functions
    - Welcome reception
    - Conference dinner
    - Networking breakfast
  • A trade exhibition of products and services
  • An equipment and machinery field day
  • Technical tours of landfills and transfer stations
  • Presentation of the biennial Landfill & Transfer Stations Excellence Awards

Don't miss this important industry event.
