The Industry Association for Organics Recycling in Australia

AORA is a modern, proactive national association within the wider resource recovery and organics management industry.

Our vision is that recycling and reuse of organic materials within a circular economy is widely understood and supported by Australians.

AORA works with all stakeholders to facilitate an operating environment which maximises the recycling and reuse of organic materials, and promotes the benefits of compost, soil conditioners and mulches across the Australian community and business.


AORA Events

AORA events include the annual conference in June, industry events, field days, workshops, webinars and partner events, AWRE and Waste Expo.  


By becoming a sponsor of AORA, you can play an active role in realising AORA's vision and participate in events and marketing opportunities. 


Vision 2031 - the AORA Roadmap for the Australian Recycling Organics Industry

The Vision poses two key questions;

  1. How do we get to 80% recycling organics by 2026 and 95% by 2031? and
  2. How do we remove the obstacles to growth?

This document is neither an academic study nor a technical analysis of organics recycling in Australia.   It has been designed to capture the practical knowledge and common sense of the industry and to show a clear and achievable path to significant growth.
