The ISWA World Congress is the most prestigious international congress for the waste management
sector, and Rotterdam is proud to host and organise it in 2020, in partnership with the NVRD. In
2020, the congress will focus on a wide range of issues such as landfill, ocean cleaning and
circular processes. 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.
