Waste management forum
June 16, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
ABS data shows us that between 1996-97 and 2006-07, the volume of waste produced per person in Australia grew at an average annual rate of 5.4%. In 1996-97, Australians generated approximately 1,200kg of waste per person. By 2006-07, this had increased to 2,100kg per person. What will the next census tell us?
