Resource Recovery News is closing

Resource Recovery News will be closed as of December 2016. We’d like to thank all our supporters.

Launched in February 2014, Resource Recovery News was founded to help develop Australia’s waste management industry. News plays an important role for growing industries - it helps companies make better decisions, it encourages collaboration through information sharing and it aids the professional growth of individuals.

We built the platform with the vision to offer high quality business information, fast, and without bias. We covered major technological, infrastructure and regulatory changes across Australia’s resource recovery industry, always with the aim of fostering best practise and sharing the achievements of industry.

Resource Recovery News was not founded as a business unit of a large media company, as most publications are. It represents my hard work, I built the service as a solo entrepreneur. While I sweated to create the content, it was our sponsors who made the service possible.

The sponsors of Resource Recovery News offered their patronage not just to promote their services, but also because they believed in, and wanted a support the vision for a safer, more professional and sustainable waste management industry. This shared vision which was the fuel in the engine of Resource Recovery News.

With this in mind, I would like to give special thanks to the major (and founding) sponsors of the service; the NSW EPA, Suez, Liebherr-Australia and Veolia. These organisations are globally leading in their pursuit of the circular economy, and I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from them.

We also had a number of small business sponsors - their contribution was just as big in heart - as small businesses constantly work to survive under tough market conditions.

These sponsors include - Garwood International, Bucher Municipal, Tarpomatic Australia, Applied Machinery Australia, Advanced Resource Recycling, Cleanaway, Naus Waste Intelligence, Solar Bins Australia, Civenex, Tyres4U, EnviroCo and EcoReps.

I’d also like to give special mention to the Australaisian Waste and Recycling and the Impact Environmental team(s) who provided not only sponsorship, but also high quality media partnerships.

I am closing Resource Recovery News not because I no longer believe in the vision or value the service. Rather, I am using the lessons learned on the project to develop new and better tools to empower industry. Most of all, I hope I created value for you, the reader.

If you enjoyed or valued the service, I would encourage you to contact me.

Sincerely, Alex Serpo - Director, Resource Recovery News at Alex[at]
