As of 1 July, Cleanaway has been providing 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 in Western Australia, including Barrow Island, Thevenard Island, Wheatstone LNG Plant, North West Supply Bases and Warehouses, and Perth Supply Bases and Warehouses.
The majority of waste is being processed at Cleanaway’s Karratha site, with recyclables being sent to the company’s newly opened materials recycling facility (MRF) in Perth.
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,” 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.”
