Industry Solutions


We create partnerships with all our clients to ensure they’re getting the most cost-effective solution possible. The manufacturing industry’s multiple inputs and outputs gives us the scope to make a real difference to you commercial and environmental sustainability. We’ll provide you with a tailored response based on your needs now and into the future to ensure whatever you’re making is creating the smallest footprint possible.


Drum collection, processing and recovery

We provide drum collection, processing, recovery and recycling services to numerous industries including paint, automotive and manufacturing. Our liquid and hazardous waste team can collect, clean and recycle plastic and steel drums and tins. We treat the waste recovered from the drums and either reuse it as fuel, or safely dispose of the waste.  Drums are then crushed, leaving scrap steel which can be put back into the system and reused.  We can also recycle the drums and sell them back to industry. For your peace of mind, Cleanaway is certified to key Australian standards for quality, environment and occupational health and safety and operates under an externally certified Integrated Management System. We deliver the highest level of operational safety, quality and compliance for your waste management needs.


Secure product destruction

Securely destroying contaminated, out-of-date, obsolete, recalled, illegal or sensitive materials or products is another one of our specialties. Whether its food and beverages, paint, clothing, toys or tobacco, to name a few, we’ll ensure it’s disassembled, broken down, crushed and shredded beyond recognition. We ensure complete anonymity and guarantee that everything is either reused, recycled or disposed of in a safe, secure, environmentally friendly way.
