A message to our waste & recycling community.


We hope you are well and staying safe, wherever you are. 

With the COVID-19 situation across the nation and particularly in Sydney unfolding rapidly, together with the expansion of the lockdowns in multiple cities, we have made the difficult decision to cancel AWRE 2021, scheduled to run 25-26 August 2021. 

AWRE represents the national waste and recycling community which brings in exhibitors and visitors predominantly from a large number of different states across Australia. The extension of the lockdowns in New South Wales, Victoria and most recently South Australia has largely impacted interstate travel for our industry to connect which has an adverse effect for us to deliver a nationwide event.   

AWRE has always centered around showcasing the full circle of innovative products and sustainable solutions from across Australia, with the opportunity to connect with influential professionals. Whilst we were committed to delivering a much anticipated face to face event this year, we aim to continue to deliver a truly national event that AWRE has become renowned for in 2022.  

“The team have been working hard to plan and deliver AWRE 2021 with new initiatives, it is extremely disheartening to not run AWRE this year. With much reviewing and replanning in the background over the past few weeks, the ambiguity of the coming months has led to the outcome, and we will focus all efforts into delivering a stronger AWRE 2022 instead.” Bill Hare, AWRE Commercial Director. 

Although we are disappointed not to be able to host AWRE this year, we are continually humbled by the support we have received from our exhibitors, partners, sponsors, speakers and suppliers. We look forward to delivering a standout face-to-face event and reuniting the industry on 24-25 August 2022 at ICC Sydney.
