Veolia acquires Ellwaste to grow Victorian waste business


Environmental solutions provider Veolia has acquired Ellwaste Waste and Recycling Services — one of the largest privately owned waste management companies in rural Victoria.

According to Simon Tori, Veolia’s group general manager for Victoria and Tasmania, the acquisition was aligned to Veolia’s strategy to grow its waste services business, promote landfill diversion and enhance its offering for regional commercial, industrial and municipal waste customers.

“With this acquisition, we will be able to leverage growth in North West Victoria through expansion of our regional footprint, allowing us to increase our service offering to both new and existing customers,” said Tori.

“We are also aiming to further expand our leading landfill diversion strategies and implement new technologies to increase waste processing efficiencies across the state.”

Tori said Ellwaste is highly regarded in rural Victoria and southern NSW, which it also services, for its customer-centric consulting and dedication to the introduction of leading waste and recycling solutions.

“The partnership will allow our teams to accelerate a new phase for waste management and hopefully inspire a ripple effect for other regions,” he said.

The management teams from both Veolia and Ellwaste are working closely together to ensure minimal disruption to existing operations for all customers, employees and suppliers. The Ellwaste team has now joined Veolia’s existing Victorian commercial services business and will work with them to seamlessly transition all involved stakeholders.

“The combination of Veolia’s world-class network and global reach, with our technical expertise and on-the-ground knowledge, will create exciting opportunities,” Ellwaste North West Regional Manager Stephen Elliott said.
