Cleanaway’s reconciliation journey



Cleanaway is dedicated to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. Our Reconciliation Plan, first launched in 2017, outlines the steps we will take towards this end. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate, offer apprenticeships and work opportunities to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and support joint-ventures with Aboriginal companies such as the Karlayura-Cleanaway Joint Venture.



Performance-based culture



For us to be a great team, achieving great things, we need to work together, focused on the same goals. Teamwork is always stronger when we have clarity and when everyone knows what their job is and what is expected of them. Our Cleanaway Leadership Model is a guide that suggests specific leadership behaviours for specific environments. The Model is a framework designed to provide unambiguous performance expectations from incumbents and future leaders to fully align with our enterprise objectives.



Members of the community where we work



Making a sustainable future possible isn’t just about managing waste and natural resources; it’s also about being proactive members of the communities we live and work in. We work together with local organisations and councils to improve services and give back to communities.
