ASK Waste Management is an independent consultancy dedicated to providing practical, cost-effective advice, services and knowledge to the waste management industry in Australia and the UK since 2007.

ASK are well-known as the regional and rural experts in waste and recycling. Our extensive hands-on experience allows us to fully understand the unique challenges of rural waste management, capitalise on missed opportunities, and ensure real and achievable solutions are delivered to every client and their community.

This experience with rural and regional local government waste management and the lack of reliable, convenient data has led us to create Cooee. A waste facility data for small to medium-sized waste facilities.
