About Us

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 makes a positive contribution to safeguarding the environment. 

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) and manage their operations appropriately for 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.
