The membership of the VWMA continues to grow. Your participation will strengthen our representation and improve our ability to represent the industry and influence the various laws, regulations fees & charges that are continually imposed on industry.

This website and E-News bulletins provide continual and timely information to keep members abreast of any changes within industry.

Membership of the Association is open to businesses and local government who operate within the industry in Victoria, including waste transporters, receiving sites and waste treaters. Associate membership is also available to businesses & individuals who work with or provide service(s) to the waste sector.

Through our contact with Victorian Government Agencies such as the EPA, WorkCover, VicRoads, and Sustainability Victoria, the VWMA is able to provide you a platform to voice your concerns, input into policy and to participate in network activities. We regularly invite Government to speak at meetings and functions on topics of interest to members.

We also maintain professional relations with the Transport Workers Union and deal with them on issues of common concern.
