Our services ensure that your brand and business names are protected at all times. Cleanaway will work closely with you to tailor the most appropriate solution for your secure confidential waste disposal needs.


Our secure product destruction and recycling services are designed to ensure complete confidentiality, transparency and privacy. Products are destroyed and its materials are reused wherever possible, to maximise resource recovery.

Cleanaway is committed to the safe and responsible management of waste, regulatory compliance and the protection and enhancement of the environment.


Whether it’s electronics, documents, food and beverages, paint, clothing, toys or tobacco, we use a combination of machine and manual processes to disassemble, break down, shred or crush the products, which can then be reused, recycled or disposed of safely, securely and sustainably.



Items for confidential data destruction

Product disposal


Any out-of-date, recalled or damaged stocks, goods, promotional materials, packaging, merchandise, equipment is accepted. Secure product destruction keeps items meant for disposal or recall from returning to the consumer system. These products include food and beverages, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. By securely disposing of sensitive material, businesses can be assured of brand, product and data integrity, especially when the public’s interests are involved.


Document destruction


Our secure document destruction service collects and disposes any items containing confidential data, financial information, business records and contracts to avoid breach of data and identity theft. All confidential papers, records, contracts, tenders, files, or printed materials will be securely collected, shredded and recycled.


Hard drive destruction & e-waste


The only way to protect your sensitive electronic data from being exposed is to ensure the physical destruction of the actual hard drive (HDD). We accept any form of electronic media including:

  • Pen drives (USB)
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Computers, laptops, printers, microfiche
  • Video tapes, films, cassettes


To prevent data breach and unauthorised access to your data, Cleanaway’s hard drive destruction service and secure data destruction ensure sensitive data is completely destroyed, not just deleted.


Cleanaway also provides e-waste collection and recycling services for businesses of all sizes.


E-waste is any electrical and electronic waste that depends on electric currents or electromagnetic fields to function, including:

  • Consumer electronics such as audio and visual devices
  • IT devices such as laptops, desktops, printers, and webcams
  • General appliances in the pantry such as microwave ovens, fridges, and induction stoves
  • Lighting devices such as lamps
  • Power tools


E-waste should not be sent to landfill as it contains toxic and hazardous materials such as lead and mercury. When disposed of correctly, e-waste can be recovered for reuse, and hazardous materials properly handled.



Secure collection and processing


You can deliver palletised products directly to our site (by appointment) or alternatively we can arrange collection and transportation on your behalf. Upon confirmation of pickup, we will arrange for the collection, transportation, destruction, recycling, and disposal of all materials in a confidential and secure manner.


All areas within our site – from goods receiving and destruction, to recycling and disposal are monitored by CCTV 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This includes full back-to-base security.


For sensitive materials, witnessed destruction sessions can be arranged ahead of time.


Our processes and strict adherence to compliance, coupled with our in-house expertise add up to an industry service proposition like no other. Cleanaway is certifi­ed to ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), and AS 4801 (OHS) standards, helping to reduce your risk profi­le.



Secure destruction methods


Depending on the type of product being destroyed, a combination of machine and manual processes are used to disassemble, break down, shred or crush the products, which are then reused, recycled or disposed of.




Our specialist recycling facilities will securely separate confidential waste into the different types of materials and components like glass, aluminium, steel and plastic to be made into new products.


By recycling waste this way, we help divert it away from landfills and back into the economy. Instead of using raw materials, new products can now be created out of recyclable materials.


Secure burial

Cleanaway also provides secure burial of approved materials where products are disposed of under supervision at an agreed site.


Each request for deep burial will need to be reviewed by the respective receiving facilities on a case-by-case basis to ensure there are no misunderstandings, and full regulatory compliance.


No matter the disposal location, a minimum of 24 hours’ notice, a booking number, and photos of the items to be disposed will be required. We can provide a certificate of destruction/burial, and photos of the burial, if required. We also allow for full supervision by the client where an escort is required for the disposal of sensitive products.


Product Destruction Assurance Certificate


You will be provided with receipted documentation upon acceptance of your goods and a Certificate of Destruction (suiting your specific requirements) will be included with your invoice.
