About this Event

Join us for an introduction to recycling for the Circular Economy and learn how you can maximise the use of your valuable resources to contribute to innovation, growth and job creation. The event will introduce the benefits of a circular economy locally, across NSW and the rest of Australia as society aims to be more sustainable. Panelists will share examples of their innovative work in waste and the re-use of materials and how this has economic and social benefits.
