Creating a positive future for all


Cleanaway is a leader in waste management services helping Australian families and businesses to reduce, recycle and safely dispose of waste for over 50 years. Their focus is to help educate the wider community on ways to make an even greater impact on a more sustainable future for all.

Their partnership with Starlight Children's Foundation highlights their commitment to a more positive future by helping making a real difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

Central to the partnership is an innovative sales campaign which supports both business objectives and staff engagement goals. Clients are encouraged to donate to Starlight alongside Cleanaway and the initiative has sparked some healthy team rivalry.

General Manager David Williamson said, "It made sense to find a way to motivate our sales staff and make a real impact at the same time. The support from our client base was just fantastic and it's a great way to raise awareness of the need too."

The partnership reflects Cleanaway's innovative approach and the passion shown by so many people across the organisation.

Staff are immensely proud of the partnership and have sought out other ways to get more involved.
