Waste 2 Resources is now part of Cleanaway



Cleanaway has grown is fleet by 27 heavy vehicles and staff by the same number following the purchase of certain Waste 2 Resources businesses in Brisbane.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, includes a skip-bin collection business, currently trading as Green Bins, a commercial and industrial collections business, and a transfer facility in Narangba that specialises in the management and recycling of construction and demolition waste. 

The fleet includes Iveco Powerstar semis and Stralis frontlift rigids, along with Volvo rigids and materials handling equipment.

"The acquisition significantly increases our construction and demolition capabilities in greater Brisbane, adding to our existing post-collections – or waste processing – facilities," Cleanaway’s Queensland GM, Neil Perry, says.

"We will be operating Green Bins alongside our Brisbane skip business, as well as integrating the commercial and industrial business with our existing, Cleanaway services."

Both of these businesses will be integrated into Cleanaway’s broader South Queensland operation.

The Narangba Transfer Station will complement Cleanaway’s existing New Chum and Willawong facilities in South East Queensland.

"The Northside transfer station, in Narangba will strengthen our local collections services and operations," Perry says.

"This acquisition is a strong reflection of the growth journey of the Cleanaway business in Queensland and is another step toward achieving our mission of making a sustainable future possible."

Cleanaway, the former Transpacific, says it had worked closely with the former management of Waste 2 Resources to finalise detailed transition plans ahead of the first day of trading under Cleanaway ownership, which took place on Friday.

Waste 2 Resources' Richland’s facility is being retained. 

"We believe that the property is currently on the market for commercial development," a Cleanaway spokesperson tells ATN. 

"Cleanaway’s Willawong Resource Recovery Facility is in close proximity to the Richlands’ site and offers similar services in the handling of construction and demolition waste. 

"Our Willawong site however has more capacity for resource recovery which better supports our corporate goals of increased recycling and resource recovery rates across all sectors."

The former Waste 2 Resources' operations will be incorporated into the broader Cleanaway business, and will be trading as Cleanaway. 

Green Bins will remain trading as a brand in the construction and demolition market in greater Brisbane.
