Resource recovery for the used oil market
Cleanaway’s Wetherill Park is an industry-leading waste oil refining facility in New South Wales. The facility recycles and processes waste oil in a closed loop, reusing it as a precious resource. This reduces Australia’s reliance on virgin crude oil.
Annually we collect used oil from over 35,000 auto workshops and businesses across the country. We process over 150 million litres of used oil, offsetting approximately 900,000 barrels of oil requirements.
Cleanaway is the largest oil recycler in Australia and the only waste management company that has facilities processing waste oil in every mainland state and territory. In 2017 the facility achieved Category 1 status under Australia’s Product Stewardship for Oil (PSO) program. Wetherill Park is Cleanaway’s second Category 1 waste oil facility next to the Rutherford Waste Oil Collection Facility in NSW.
As a Category 1 waste oil processor, Cleanaway generates the highest quality re-refined oil products. New base oils are non-carcinogenic products that can be used as engine lubricant, transformer oil, hydraulic oil or any client-specific oils.
Wetherill Park is an EPA-licensed treatment facility that features state-of-the-art used oil generators, consolidated storage and compliant processing. Our comprehensive technology and process gives you the assurance that your waste oil is refined and utilised to the fullest.

How we do it
Waste oil is tracked, reported and treated before reuse so you can monitor your waste oil and report to local councils and other regulating bodies as needed.
At the facility waste oil goes through initial testing based on the variety of oil. We remove contaminants through a separation system, which then produces virgin quality re-refined oil.
