Transpacific Cleanaway processed record volumes of recyclables in the 2015 financial year, according to its 2015 Sustainability Report.

The report shows Australia’s largest waste management and recycling company’s ongoing commitment to incorporating sustainability principles throughout the business.

This report shows the recyclable products that Transpacific Cleanaway handled in the 2015 financial year included:

  • 228,221 tonnes of paper and cardboard;
  • 10,179 tonnes of plastic packaging; and
  • 3,758 tonnes of metal packaging.

The company also collected more than 99,000 tonnes of organic liquid waste, which was used to fertilise agricultural land through soil injection.

Head of Environment and Safety, Richard Pittard, said the two arms of the business were constantly exploring new areas of sustainable waste management to further expand existing services and help customers.

“The driving force for our projects across Australia is a common goal, to extract the maximum value from every tonne or litre of waste we collect and process,” he said.

“We are constantly looking for innovative solutions for our customers to sustainably extract more valuable resources from each tonne of waste generated.”

The company also captured over 76 million cubic meters of landfill gas across its owned and managed landfills, generating 113 million KWH of renewable energy.


The release of the report comes ahead of the company’s Annual General Meeting in Brisbane on 30 October, where shareholders will vote on a motion to change the company name to Cleanaway Waste Management Limited.
