Waste water management

We have never been more aware of water than now – both our consumption of it, and our waste. The disposal of untreated  wastewater environment damages natural biodiversity and the quality of water resources.

Industrial sites catering for light, general and heavy industry underpin the economy of the state and provide substantial employment opportunities, however some waste management practices may pose a significant risk to sensitive water resources. Appropriate site location, provision of services, facilities design and best operational management practices are needed to minimise this risk.

Examples of the impacts that may occur when industrial wastes are discharged include petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, surfactants, toxins and/or salts, which may pollute receiving waters rendering them unsuitable as a water supply or pose a threat to aquatic life. Some industrial wastes are volatile or release toxic gases. In receiving waters, excessive nutrients can lead to algal blooms, oxygen deficits and increase colour and turbidity.

At Wanless, our waste management facilities are fully compliant with health and environmental standards. Wanless meets the stringent specifications for the treatment of urban wastewater, and guarantee your wastewater is collected, treated and disposed of or reused in a responsible manner.

Our vision goes deeper than recycling

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
