Unfortunately, our previous industry association (APRAA) is no longer in a position to offer national coverage to the auto recycling industry. We do not believe there is a likelihood of this situation changing in the foreseeable future.
National representation of our industry cannot be left in a vacuum while recyclers face important issues that potentially affect their livelihood. Climate change, increasing environmental regulation and consumer law reform are some of these issues and many recyclers have concluded that a national stand-alone association is now required to provide specific industry input to regulatory authorities.
Auto Recyclers Association of Australia (ARAA) has been established as a national independent organisation to represent all auto recyclers across all states and territories. Auto recyclers will now have the opportunity of representation independent of the other motor trades sectors.
