The National Waste and Recycling Industry Council (NWRIC) acts as the industry’s national policy setting body. Its core activity is to proactively engage with all of the industry’s key stakeholders to promote solutions to the regulatory challenges facing the sector.

The founding members of the Council – Alex Fraser Group, Cleanaway, J. J. Richards and Sons, Solo Resource Recovery, Sims Metal Management, Suez, Toxfree, Remondis, ResourceCo and Veolia – represent the majority of the private capital invested into waste management and recycling assets in Australia.

While the Council is a national body, it also works pro-actively with Affiliates, which represent the interests of the industry at a State level. Through collective action, the Council and its State-based partners form a network representing the industry Australia wide.
