ESSENTIAL INFRASTUCTURE FOR AUSTRALIA'S FUTURE
Landfills and transfer stations play an essential role in an integrated waste and resource recovery (WARR) industry, providing facilities for materials aggregation and separation, recovery, and final disposal, as well as being critical in times of disaster - both natural and pandemic. Australia’s facilities are highly engineered and designed to ensure best practice.
Sensible infrastructure planning, and continued improvement and innovation in design, operation, regulation, and safety, are all paramount for these facilities to continue to deliver the essential services and support they offer.
Under the theme 'Essential infrastructure for Australia’s future' the WMRR's 2023 Australian Landfill and Transfer Stations (ALTS) Conference will provide a forum to share knowledge and discuss opportunities, pathways, and models to drive the industry forward.
The #2023ALTS Conference is made possible with the ongoing support of industry, including:
- Platinum sponsor - Geofabrics
- Dinner sponsor - Tonkin + Taylor
- Barista sponsor - Ennovo
- Name badge sponsor - WSP Australia
- Break sponsor - LMS Energy
- And more!

AUSTRALIAN LANDFILL AND TRANSFER STATION AWARDS
The Australian Landfill and Transfer Station (ALTS) Awards, were established in 2007 to showcase the best that landfills and transfer stations have to offer.
