While waste may seem like an ordinary part of everyday life, it has extraordinary potential. We look at all waste as a resource and we use our facilities and processes to transform it into valuable commodities for every sector, industry and community. By recovering these extraordinary raw resources and “closing the loop”, we’re proud to be making a sustainable future possible.
From ordinary household rubbish sitting in landfill, we’re able to capture 85% of the gas used to fire the brick kilns at Austral’s Horsley Park plant – an extraordinary 130 million bricks are produced, enough to build some 145,000 homes.
Over 230,000 tonnes of cardboard, over 14,000 tonnes of metal, and over 10,000 tonnes of plastics pass through our sorting facilities every year. From there, each commodity is ready to be used to create something extraordinary once again.
Through our innovative processes of anaerobic digestion and composting, Cleanaway are able to produce over 100,000 tonnes of fertiliser and nurtrient-rich soil each year.
Nobody likes seeing food go to ‘waste’. We take the time to collect it before transforming it into nutrient-rich compost that in turn helps farmers feed crops and puts food back on the shelves.
The process of construction can be wasteful, but that doesn’t mean materials can’t go on to become something extraordinary once more. We sort, separate and process concrete, plasterboard, metals, tiles and timber ready to be used for countless purposes.
With facilities all over Australia, we separate waste from water, distill solvent waste into new solvents for sale, and transform septic waste into high quality compost.
You may just see sewage, but we see extraordinary potential. Every year, Cleanaway transform over 170,000 tonnes of… errr, waste... into eco-friendly fertilisers and soils for crops and gardens.
Cleanaway are experts in the quarantine, treatment and disposal of materials that may otherwise have detrimental effects on all our health.
From thousands of vehicles and workshops, we’re able to collect enough oil to offset Australia’s oil needs by an extraordinary 900,000 barrels per year, and produce a range of high-grade base and fuel oils.
When we assist your business with waste management, you’re helping us create a more sustainable future.
