The Waste, Recycling Industry Association of Queensland Inc, (WRIQ) is the premier industry association in Queensland, representing more than 90 Queensland-based organisations ranging from large multi-national organisations through to small family-operated enterprises.

WRIQ engages and advocates with its stakeholders in a wide range of legislative and regulatory issues, which members have identified issues impacting the industry.

Queensland’s waste management and secondary resources (including recycling) industry, provides essential infrastructure and services, as demonstrated by the efficient manner in which wastes are safely collected and treated, thus safeguarding public and environmental health. The sector also recovers valuable secondary resources generated during extraction and manufacturing processes and those later discarded by society, therefore driving a circular economy and directly contributing to the economic growth of the State.
