Director of City of Sydney David Riordan, joined Cleanaway CEO and Managing Director, Vik Bansal and Solid Waste Services (NSW/ACT) General Manager David Clancy to launch Cleanaway’s new Hillsdale depot this June.
The new facility will support the City of Sydney’s domestic waste needs as part of Cleanaway’s seven-year contract to provide waste and recycling services. Cleanaway will also be working closely with Council to help residents improve landfill diversion and recycling rates through our award-winning education team.

The launch event started with local elders Aunty Donna and Les Daniel leading a Welcome to Country ceremony. This was followed by a Smoking Ceremony where Les had all guests walk through the smoke as a ceremonial gesture to signify new beginnings.
Director of City of Sydney David Riordan spoke about how the facility supports targets outlined in the Council’s Sustainable Sydney 2030 Strategy. Sustainable Sydney 2030 is a set of goals designed to help the city to become as “green, global and connected as possible by 2030” by transforming the way communities live, work and play.
Also in attendance were City of Sydney’s Project Sponsor, Cathy Price, along with Cleanaway partners (Bucher, Mercedes-Benz, Hino, and Stillwell Trucks) who supplied 25 brand new trucks – all fitted with Cleanaway’s Cleanaview technology.
