A one-stop solution for AP Eagers’ waste streams


September 6, 2017


The challenge

AP Eagers is Australia’s oldest listed automotive retail group. They sell new and used cars, while also providing servicing and car parts for sale. In September 2016, AP Eagers engaged tenders for a total waste management provider.

They were looking for someone who could handle all lines of waste their workshops and dealerships generated, from timber, paint, waste oil, batteries, and tyre collection to recycling waste and steel recycling to name a few. Cleanaway stepped in to provide the total waste management solution AP Eagers were looking for.

The solution

Cleanaway provides a total waste management solution, catering to all APE’s recycling and waste disposal needs including timber, paint, waste oil, coolant, batteries, steel and tyre collection. Our packaging waste services maximises cardboard, poly and shrink wrap recycling at our Hemmant facility, and we’re able to recycle waste oil at our Narangba facility.

With our complete range of cost-effective and efficient services and a single Key Account Manager, Cleanaway now delivers general waste and Harvest recycling services for an additional 30 AP Eagers sites, which were previously handled by another provider.

The results

Cleanaway implemented a one-stop solution for managing waste and recycling without affecting day-to-day operations in over 46 sites in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The future

Cleanaway continue to work closely with AP Eagers to improve their sustainability results, through innovative waste collection, while maximising resource recovery. AP Eagers generates over 800,000 litres of waste oil annually, making waste oil recovery and recycling an integral part of our partnership with them.
