Cleanaway has been contracted to provide waste management services to energy company Chevron Australia.
It comes after Toxfree announced that it would cease services to Chevron on its Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island after seven years.
From 1 July, Cleanaway will provide waste management services including the collection, processing, treatment and disposal of all solid waste, recycling and liquid waste across a number of Chevron-operated sites.
The Western Australian sites include Barrow Island, Thevenard Island, Wheatstone LNG Plant, North West Supply Bases and Warehouses and Perth Supply Bases and Warehouses.
The majority of waste will be processed at Cleanaway’s Karratha site, with recyclables being sent to the company’s Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in Perth, which will start operations in May 2017.
Cleanaway General Manager Solids David Williamson said the company recently established an agreement with the Thalanyji people, the Traditional Owners of the lands near Onslow (WA) to provide business and employment opportunities to the local community.
“We are very proud to be awarded this contract and look forward to working with Chevron Australia to deliver a safe and efficient waste management service,” Mr Williamson said.
“We are also excited to be working with the Thalanyji people to provide genuine opportunities for employment within the local community – making a sustainable future possible for all Australians.”
