A smarter way and a better way: meet the new Cleanaway

Cleanaway Waste Management Limited is Australia’s leading total waste management, industrial and environmental services company. For more than 50 years we have supported Australian industry, business, government, communities and households – delivering a comprehensive range of solutions that not only offer extraordinary benefits for our customers, but for our communities for generations to come.


Listed as one of the top 100 companies on the ASX (ASX: CWY), in 2018 we welcomed Toxfree and Daniels Health into the fold, increasing our footprint to over 5,500 highly trained staff, supported by a fleet of almost 4,000 specialist vehicles, working from a network of more than 250 locations around Australia.


All this adds up to one of the largest waste, recycling, industrial services and liquids collections fleets on the road, with a substantial network of recycling facilities, transfer stations, engineered landfills, liquid treatment plants and refineries. At Cleanaway, we can offer our customers an almost unrivalled capacity to collect, process, treat, recycle or safely dispose of any type of waste.


Our mission is to make a sustainable future possible. To some, waste may seem like an ordinary part of everyday life, but we know it has extraordinary potential. We see all waste as a resource and use our facilities and processes to transform it into valuable commodities for every sector, industry and community.


The business has three major operating segments:


  • Solid Waste Services– Our state-based Solid Waste Services business operates the largest solid waste and recycling services fleet in Australia supported by the leading resource recovery and post collection facilities network across the country. We service more than 95 municipal councils and over 135,000 local businesses.
  • Liquids & Health Services – We are the largest hydrocarbons recycling business in Australia and a leader in the overall liquids market, collecting and processing 140 million litres of mineral oil as well as collecting and processing 680 million litres of hazardous and non-hazardous liquids. The acquisition of Daniels Health allows us to handle all healthcare generated waste streams, with an unrivalled national service infrastructure and best in class products and services.
  • Industrial Services – Our Industrial Services offers a wide range of plant and asset management services that provide solutions to reduce production downtime, the risk of unscheduled plant stoppages and the reliance on labour; increase plant efficiency; and help customers comply with strict environmental and OHS requirements.


The Cleanaway difference is our dedicated team of highly trained in-house experts, who proudly deliver tailored solutions to our customers each and every day. We are proud to be an employer of choice and are committed to nurturing our diverse workforce through a robust training and development program, our Reconciliation Action Plan and equal opportunity employment policies.


We passionately believe in sustainability. For us, sorting waste isn’t a matter of asking ‘where does it go now?’, but ‘what can it be next?’. Seeing waste as a resource allows our business to continue growing –returning commodities to the value chain and providing our customers and communities with the best solutions on the market. Our unmatched experience and expertise in the industry means we’re always finding better, smarter and cleaner ways to make a sustainable future possible.
