The biennial WARRQ – formerly Waste Q – conference is on in 2021, this time at the home of Aussie’s favourite rum, Bundaberg.
The 2021 conference has its eye set on future-proofing waste and resource recovery (WARR) in Queensland, under the theme, “To 2030 and beyond”.
The future looks bright for our essential industry, with settings such as the waste export bans and long-term policy directions at all levels of government in place, backed by significant state and federal funding commitments. So, how can we capture this once-in-a-life time shift and focus on WARR? How can the state meet both its and the national WARR targets and soar to unprecedented levels of growth and success that will secure our long-term viability to 2030 and beyond?
The 2021 WARRQ Conference will delve into state and regional best practice and innovation, current and new policy directions, challenging waste streams and the opportunities they present, and the importance of education in long-term planning.
The conference will also seek to identify current and emerging issues facing metro and regional WARR management and will look to local and national success stories and lessons learnt to solve them.
The 2021 WARRQ Conference is made possible with the support of our incredible sponsors:

The 2021 call for abstracts attracted a record number of submissions, resulting in a not-to-be-missed quality program covering all things WARR from product stewardship, data, organics, infrastructure planning and more.
