Cleanaway’s Harvest service is offered to customers in south east Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne, and enables customers to mix recyclable products such as cardboard, transparent plastic shrink wrap and polystyrene in one dedicated bin. This option allows businesses with large amounts of eligible packaging waste to recycle these materials easily and divert more waste from landfill.

Cardboard, polystyrene, and clean and clear LDPE collected through Harvest in Queensland, is sent to our Hemmant facility where the material is sorted and processed before being sold to recyclers who will process the materials.

Neil Perry, Cleanaway QLD General Manager, points out that, “The site is designed and laid out to improve the flow of product and materials from raw, pre-processed product through to finished, baled material ready for transport to the Port or domestic buyers and reprocessors.”

Annually, our Hemmant facility alone recovers, sorts and processes approximately 600 tonnes of these materials for recycling. Here’s what it looks like:
