About Us

Resource recovery at every opportunity

Cleanaway Waste Management Limited is Australia’s leading total waste management, industrial and environmental services company. We have served Australia for over 50 years, delivering solutions that offer extraordinary benefits not just for our customers, but for the communities and environment we live in.

In 2018, we welcomed Toxfree and Daniels Health into the Cleanaway family, expanding our reach and scale to over 6,300 expert staff and a specialist fleet of over 5,300 vehicles spread over 250 locations in Australia. 2020 saw the addition of Grasshopper Environmental, improving our resource recovery efforts in the construction and demolition industry. In 2021, we acquired seven post-collection assets from Suez, expanding our waste processing capabilities further and leading to the creation of the Sydney Resource Network (SRN).

At Cleanaway, we offer our customers an unrivalled capacity to collect, process, treat, recycle or safely dispose of any type of waste. Because we see all waste as a resource, managing Australia’s waste needs isn’t a matter of asking “where does it go now?”, but “what can it be next?” Our experience and expertise in the industry means we’re always finding better, smarter and cleaner ways to make a sustainable future possible.

This has led to deep collaborations and partnerships with leaders across different industries. In 2017 we worked with TOMRA as TOMRA Cleanaway to deliver Return and Earn, NSW’s container return scheme as the Network Operator, with an extension granted to continue in 2022.

We have also partnered with Pact Group and Asahi Beverages to create Circular Plastics Australia (CPA), a joint venture to close the loop on PET plastic. This partnership creates valuable raw material sourced from container return schemes across the country to be turned into new beverage and food containers.
