Veolia Australia and New Zealand has completed a buyout of its joint venture with Cleanaway Waste Management, acquiring full ownership of Western Resource Recovery and Total Waste Management (TWM).
Western Resource Recovery and its treatment arm – Total Waste Management – was established in 2000 as a joint venture between Veolia and Cleanaway Waste Management. The venture currently has 61 full-time employees and fleet of 25 trucks.
Acting group general manager – WA Clay South said Veolia is pleased to have completed the purchase and become the sole operator of two well-established local businesses.
“The liquid and hazardous waste treatment market is a key strategic growth area and by wholly owning both operations Veolia now offers a competitive liquid waste collection and treatment service in Western Australia,” he said.
Western Resource Recovery and Total Waste Management have an operational footprint spanning Perth to Karratha, providing waste management services to 3,500 retail and industrial customers.
Veolia will now solely own and manage the operations and management of six depots, including a liquid treatment plant and tank farm, across Perth (Welshpool), Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Port Hedland and Bunbury.
