Our Commitment

We are committed to a world without waste – where the materials we generate are a resource, and we help councils and communities create circular economies.

Our Mandalay team members actively contribute to the industry through education, presentations, workshops and speaking engagements across the sector based around industry best practice and improving the operations of facilities.

We employ several people from the industry, including two local government waste management specialists, who assist our clients with commercial advice and other consulting needs.

We have over 30 team members in our Australian-based team and deal with hundreds of operational sites within the waste and quarry industries. Here are some of the faces you may come across.
