Remondis Australia has acquired a liquid waste collection business in Queensland.

Effective September 8, Remondis is now the new owner of Waste Trans, operated by AusWaste Environmental.

The transaction involves Remondis taking future responsibility for all client contracts and purchasing the majority of the organisation's equipment and vehicles.

All employees have taken up positions with Remondis, including the management team and Remondis will continue to operate the existing Waste Trans' sites located at Staplyton and Tanawah.

 The acquisition significantly increases Remondis' capability in the region, adding a fleet of 17 liquid waste collection vehicles to its operations in Queensland. Similarly, the company can now provide Waste Trans' existing customers with access to its solid waste and recycling services in the region.
