REMONDIS Australia has acquired Environmental Treatment Solutions (ETS). 

ETS entered into joint-venture arrangements with REMONDIS in 2018. The full acquisition has been completed just recently. ETS’s Minto headquarters in Sydney and its Blayney and Rutherford sites in regional New South Wales will operate under the REMONDIS fold moving forward. 

Both parties emphasised a business-as-usual approach in terms of services and customer attention, with ETS continuing to operate under its own widely regarded brand. 

There are no anticipated changes to staffing, with all of ETS’s 25 staff to remain. 

A highlight of the arrangement will be the eventual addition of waste water treatment operations at Rutherford, which may result in staff recruitment. ETS obtained NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) approvals for such expansion earlier this year. 

“Environmental Treatment Solutions is an ideal fit, having developed a first class track record in terms of environmental contribution and customer focus over many years,” ETS Manager Brad Williams said.  “The biggest winners are customers, given that the synergies of both ETS and REMONDIS will take customer offerings and service to a higher level. The arrangements position us to remain cost competitive across the Australian dangerous goods management landscape, and create scope for us to attract many new customers.” 

REMONDIS acknowledges ETS owners and respected industry stalwarts, Jock Germany and Geoff O’Dell, the driving forces behind the ETS success story. Jock and Geoff will remain close to operations in pivotal consultancy roles, with a focus on customer relations. 

ETS operates multiple end-to-end hazardous waste and dangerous goods disposal facilities with a focus on packaged waste streams. It specialises in chemical and hazardous waste, contaminated soil, bulk liquids, industrial services and product destruction. Operating under multiple EPA licenses it manages all aspects of the waste management process including identification, packaging, transport and disposal. The business is a ‘go-to’ for highly complex and challenging tasks for corporate and government clients across Australia.
