“My dad is my hero. He is 82 and still works 7 days a week, not dependent on anyone.”
When asked about her inspiration in life Ramya is quick to call out her dad. Looking at his work ethic it’s clear that Ramya has picked up more than a couple of her dad’s habits.

Ramya worked with NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and in the mining sector before joining us at Cleanaway. After 15 years, Ramya wanted change and a challenge.
“The waste sector is ever changing and is changing for good. I wanted to be a part of the change and make this world a better place.” said Ramya of her decision to make the career change.
Ramya looks after our Stawell landfill and Warrnambool transfer station supporting these two sites to improve environmental compliance and performance. “I provide guidance, inspect sites, build capability, review risk management controls and provide assurance for business.”
Her approach to the role is realistic yet optimistic and goes by the mantra of “I do the best I can within my capacity.”
To those looking to join the waste industry Ramya says, “Come and be part of this industry, to make this world a better place for the next generation.”
Ramya describes herself as a “very happy person” and loves dancing, watching movies, music, travelling and socialising. It’s no wonder she sees the bright side of life even through the challenges of the pandemic. “While COVID has affected everyone in one or the other way, I have been lucky to have supportive family and friends.”
Ramya looks forward to meeting even more colleagues as she makes her rounds across our sites doing what she does best.
