Veolia acquires Ellwaste

Water transport provider, Veolia, has acquired Ellwaste Waste and Recycling Services, a regional waste management business servicing rural New South Wales and Victoria.

Simon Tori, Veolia’s Group General Manager for Victoria and Tasmania (pictured), said the acquisition was aligned with Veolia’s strategy to grow its waste services business, to further promote landfill diversion and to enhance its offering for regional commercial, industrial and municipal waste customers.

Since its inception in 1984, Ellwaste has grown to be one of the largest privately owned waste management companies in rural Victoria, servicing the northern half of the state and southern New South Wales with depots in Echuca, Mildura and Swan Hill.

Ellwaste boasts a fleet of side-loaders, front lifts, rear loaders, roll on-roll off trucks and trailers, B-doubles, landfill compactors, excavators, scrapers, vans and various other pieces of equipment.

“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.

Veolia’s presence in Victoria already includes a number of depots in Keysborough, Brooklyn, Corio, Morwell, Shepparton, Wodonga and Wagga Wagga.

“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 added.

Tori said Ellwaste was highly regarded in rural Victoria and New South Wales 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,” said Tori.

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

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 have joined Veolia’s existing Victorian commercial services business and together, they will transition all involved stakeholders.
