Waste oil collection services across Australia

Hassle-free waste oil collection & disposal services

Cleanaway is the largest waste oil collector in the country – we collect used oil and provide disposal and recycling services for thousands of clients across Australia.


Our waste oil removal services cater for all types of waste oil including used engine oil, oily water, hydraulic oil and sump oil.


Our oil recycling service creates a closed loop in oil usage, re-refinings used oil to create fuel oil, process oil and base oil, giving them a new lease on life. This also helps offset Australia’s and New Zealand’s oil requirements by approximately 900,000 barrels annually, lowering our nation’s need for virgin refined oil.


Used oil and its related waste are regulated strictly. The waste must be collected and managed by a company that holds the relevant licences required by the state’s Environmental Regulator. Cleanaway is a certified “trackable” waste transporter. We have systems in place to electronically track your waste oil disposal so you can easily report to your local authority as required. Cleanaway is also certified to ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment) and AS 4801 (OHS) standards, helping you reduce your risk profile.


Cleanaway’s extensive fleet of waste oil collection tankers can service your individual requirements – from small 6000 litre tankers and flat deck trucks for drums through to AB-Triple combinations that can remove up to 80,000 litres of waste oil. In combination with strict licensing standards of our operators and drivers, this means we will deliver the highest level of operational safety, quality and compliance.
