The Waste Enforcement Association Australia will host the industry leading Australian Illegal Waste Conference in partnership with the Environment Protection Authority Victoria on Friday  21st July 2023 at Jasper Hotel, Melbourne Victoria.

The conference will demonstrate proven and effective tools for reducing illegal waste while showcasing industry leading practices in waste regulation, investigation, and prosecution.

Attendees will hear from recognised experts in illegal waste management who will outline the fundamentals of regulatory programs and discuss techniques used for proactive management of emerging trends in illegal waste.


Topics will be relevant to all land managers and waste authorities. The content and discussions from speakers throughout the day will guide decision makers to implement or improve existing regulatory programs, while concurrent training will assist authorised officers to implement these new regulatory approaches.

The Australian Illegal

  • Demonstrate proven or effective tools reducing illegal waste and showcase leading examples in illegal waste regulation, investigation and prosecution.

  • Demonstrate proactive approaches to managing emerging illegal waste issues.

  • Assist waste authority management to regulate, investigate and prosecute illegal waste.

The Conference will be presented in a single stream format to provide event partners and sponsors with maximum access to delegates throughout the event’s duration with associated advertising and promotional opportunities.

The program will include a combination of presentations and panel discussions combined with ample opportunities for attendee interaction.  To enhance audience engagement the Conference will use ’Catchbox’. This is a padded microphone that can be thrown between members of the audience, allowing them to ask questions and make comments more quickly than if the microphone is passed from one to another.
