"The waste conference was incredibly beneficial in gaining insight into waste minimisation and education initiatives that Councils across Australia are implementing."

Jean Young, Waste Education Officer, Greater Shepparton City Council

"Very useful for updating self-knowledge of all aspects, trends and directions of the waste industry, as well as meeting the diverse characters within it."

Darron Ellery, Waste Contracts Coordinator, Shoalhaven City Council

"I recommend the Coffs Conference to all local government representatives. Waste is too important, too costly and too political for you not to know the latest information."

Mike Ritchie, Company Director, MRA Consulting Group

"Very useful and informative conference. As a first time attendee I was impressed and will certainly attend again."

Anthony Lewis, Director, Goulburn Valley Waste & Resource Recovery Group

Sally Rice, Manager Safety Amenity & Environment, Moira Shire Council

"The Waste Conference is a great way to get a comprehensive look at where the waste industry is now and where it will be heading to in the future. It also provides an opportunity to meet the movers and shakers in the waste industry."

James Allsop, Senior Environmental Sustainability Officer, Holroyd City Council

"The Waste Conference at Coffs Harbour has been our 'must exhibit at’ event for more than ten years. A great opportunity to catch up with existing customers and other contacts from within the industry."
