If an industry working group is represented in more than three states, a National Division is formed. At present WMRR has five National Divisions, operating at a federal level while also overseeing state activity. Please view the Terms of Reference of the national divisions for further details.

Landfill
  • Chair: Paul Lightbody
  • Objectives: The Landfill division exists to promote and improve the landfill industry. The division members consider that landfill is the most appropriate method for the disposal of residual waste in nearly all circumstances in Australia.

Carbon
  • Chair: Joe Pickin

The Carbon division, however, also considers the perspectives of landfill customers and other affected waste management sectors (such as recyclers and organics processors).
