TOMRA Cleanaway Awards

TOMRA Cleanaway Awards

At TOMRA Cleanaway, we believe service excellence delivered by our team is the key to a world class container deposit scheme. As network operator for the NSW Return and Earn container deposit scheme, we play a pivotal role in ensuring the scheme’s success through high levels of customer participation and engagement that is achieved through our committed staff delivering excellence.

The TOMRA Cleanaway awards commenced in 2018 and each year, we highlight the unique individual contributions our staff members make to the network operation for Return and Earn and we celebrate our collective achievement through the annual ‘TOMRA Cleanaway Awards’.

The awards are an opportunity to recognise  and thank those team members that colleagues, and management, have singled out for delivering service excellence. In 2021, the nominations period commenced in October and concluded in late November. Peer nominations were anonymous, and individuals were nominated for business wide service excellence. Over and above this internal recognition, the team members are acknowledged for delivering a level of excellence that has a positive influence on the community relying on Return and Earn through TOMRA Cleanaway network services.

Votes were counted and calibrated in November for December2021 announcement.

In 2021 peer nominations were so strong and reasoning for nominations so compelling we added several additional categories to accommodate additional staff members.

To all of our team, you have our thanks and we celebrate your contribution. To those staff that received nominations and were awarded for excellence – Congratulations from all of us!
