Elephants Foot has continuously been working behind the scenes with our clients to provide operational waste management in Australia, innovative chute solutions, and service maintenance to assist new developments through the development application (DA) process.

By utilising our years of industry experience, relationships and networking, we have been able to contribute in ensuring new developments comply with local government requirements on waste management.

With extensive senior experience and expertise in environmental and business disciplines, the Elephants Foot team is well equipped to assist in a range of waste, recycling and resource management disciplines.

We help businesses of all industries and sizes rethink their waste management, achieve cost savings and improve operational efficiency and environmental outcomes.

As part of our services, we aim to educate all clients and provide them with invaluable information to make informed decisions on how they can best manage their waste output, and find value in waste management. We push for the importance of the circular economy- an economy that eradicates excess waste through innovative design, or when a client’s waste by-product is the input to another industry.

While we primarily service businesses throughout NSW, we also collaborate with businesses interstate.
