The AORA Annual Conference is well established as the principal conference in Australia for the recycled organics industry. Each conference is a forum for education, discussion and networking related to Organics Recycling. It is also an opportunity to celebrate outstanding achievements in the industry.

The Annual AORA Conference features workshops, presentations, Gala Dinner, Networking Function and industry tours. This is an opportunity to network with industry leaders and gain insight to the latest achievements in the Organics Recycling Industry.

The first AORA conference was held in 2013 in Sydney and is now run annually, rotating the location around Australia.


The Australian Organics Recycling Association (AORA) works on behalf of its members to raise awareness of the benefits of recycling organic resources.

It aims to act as an advocate for the wider organics resource recovery and beneficial reuse industries, and to represent their views in a constructive dialogue with policy makers. The Association envisages an industry in which best practice is shared, standards are maintained and surpassed, and a positive contribution to safeguarding the environment is made.

The Association consists of a national body represented by a Board. State divisions operate in defined geographical areas (e.g. states or territories of the Commonwealth of Australia), managing their operations relevantly to their region. The AORA Board provides coordination across the divisions and a means of addressing state and national matters, as well as being the administrative managers of the business.

Building the Future of our Industry – Turning our organic waste into a national resource

Through a strong and robust collaboration between Australia’s organics recycling industry, State and Federal governments and businesses, we are strategically positioned to play a vital role in adding significant economic and environmental value to the Australian economy.

The Conference will explore how positive collaborative efforts can lead to consistent national and state policies and directions for organics recycling and a circular economy, in turn creating opportunities for innovation and growth that results in a strong organics recycling industry.


The AORA Conference Organising Committee consists of industry professionals from across the sector. The Australian Organics Recycling Association thanks the committee members for their contribution to the event.
