Working together to service the US Navy

Our Services

September 1, 2017


Following Cleanaway’s liquid and solid waste services to the US Navy in Brisbane, Cleanaway skips, along with Cleanaway Liquids service, delivered quarantine waste removal services to the US Navy Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, USS Bonhomme Richard, during its 7 day stay in Melbourne.

Bulk bin services were provided daily with all quarantine waste being removed for disposal. Key Account Manager, Josh Exton said, “It was a big job but with Cleanaway’s scope of services we could manage everything internally and provide the required 24/7 service to remove a required 80m3 of quarantine waste at set times throughout the day and over 40,000 litres of ship bilge.”

“It’s an exciting job to deliver and we had all hands on deck with BDM Zoran Licinar and Operations Coordinator Heather Carrick managing the quarantine services, and Operations Supervisor Sam Morris, and Dispatch Coordinator Raeleene Eldridge, managing the ship bilge removal,” Josh said.

Josh added, “We had several layers of teams working around the clock to ensure we adhered to fluctuating schedules, safety and security requirements for the Port Authorities and USN Bonhomme.”

Another example of how Cleanaway’s network of waste management solutions comes together to provide Industrials, hard waste and post collection services to all types of businesses – on land and on the sea.
