Tuesday, 23 February, 2016 - 15:02

Local waste management company Tox Free Solutions has won a new contract for work at BHP Billiton’s Olympic Dam mine in South Australia, along with an extension for ongoing work at Chevron’s Western Australian assets, for an undisclosed sum.

In a statement today, Tox Free announced it had been awarded a contract to provide both industrial and waste management services to BHP’s Olympic Dam.

The scope of work includes management of all wastes generated from mining operations, industrial cleaning and quarantine services, landfill management and recycling services under a five-year term, beginning in June.

Tox Free managing director Stephen Gostlow said the company’s core strategy was focused on providing integrated industrial service and waste management solutions for clients such as BHP.

“We’ve been able to demonstrate to client’s improvement in productivity and cost savings without compromising our values of safety, reliability and sustainability and we are very optimistic about the opportunity to demonstrate our capability to BHP through the award of the Olympic Dam contract,” he said.

“Tox Free continues to remain focused on organic growth opportunities through award of total waste management and industrial service contracts with blue chip clients throughout Australia.

“Our contract pipeline remains strong with over $80 million of contracts.”

Tox Free also announced today that it had signed a two-year extension of its waste management contract with Chevron.

The contract has now been extended until 2021, and follows Tox Free having just completed 6 years without a lost time injury on Barrow Island, where Chevron’s Gorgon gas project is located.

Chevron awarded Tox Free a contract in 2009 to handle waste management during construction of the Gorgon project, and subsequently awarded it a further contract in 2013 for services at Chevron’s other WA assets.

Tox Free shares were 3 per cent higher to $2.35 each at the close of trade.
