EnviroCom’s consultants invited to present at national conferences

2019 is once again proving to be a busy year for EnviroCom as our experienced consultants are called upon to share their expertise and showcase a range of innovative projects at conferences across the country.

In April, EnviroCom was invited by the Melbourne Waste and Resource Recovery Group (MWRRG) to present at their toolbox workshop on, ‘How to develop and deliver your FOGO Community Behaviour Change program’, which was attended by more than 80 representatives from local Councils.

In May, EnviroCom attended the Waste 2019 Conference at Coffs Harbour and presented a paper entitled Waste Education- Time for a Rethink that acknowledged that while education is undoubtedly a powerful tool for community engagement and community change also questioned whether there is a need to reconsider the approach to waste education in light of recent events within the industry.

In May, EnviroCom also attended the inaugural Cleantech Conference on the Sunshine Coast and delivered a presentation that demonstrated how strategic, timely and targeted education can have a positive influence on community behaviour change, regardless of the industry sector.

In October, EnviroCom will attend the WMRR 2019 WasteQ Regional Waste Management Conference in Toowoomba and will present on a range of projects including: a Beach Litter Project that showcases the powerful role of community engagement in effective litter management and litter source reduction; Let’s Go FOGO- a project that considers how understanding and addressing behaviour change drivers can have a positive impact on diversion rates of food materials into FOGO; and, how targeted bin inspection and educational intervention programs are having a noticeable impact on driving positive waste diversion behaviours at the household level.

In October, EnviroCom will also be attending the Victorian Waste Education Conference in Geelong to present on the processes, challenges and outcomes of developing a FOGO Behaviour Change Implementation Plan and Business Case on behalf of three regional Victorian Councils as well as showcasing the successful ACT Green Waste Service as an example of how targeted and strategic community education and engagement has resulted in high rates of community participation, negligible contamination and high customer satisfaction.

And, not forgetting, that back in February EnviroCom was voted number 1 outright for ‘Education, Training and Community’ in the Inside Waste Consultants survey as voted by our clients and customers.
