The ISWA World Congress is the most prestigious international congress for the waste management sector, and Rotterdam is proud to host and organise the congress in 2020, in partnership with the NVRD. In 2020, the congress will focus on a wide range of issues such as separate collection and recycling, waste treatment, marine litter and the circular economy. These issues align with Rotterdam’s ambition to lead the pack when it comes to the circular economy. By 2050, waste will no longer exist in our city.
The ISWA World Congress is a global meeting which includes high level plenaries as well as technical site visits and a cultural and social programme where waste management professionals, government officials, industry leaders, policy makers, scientists and young professionals meet to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management.
