NSW ‘Return and Earn’ Network Operator, TOMRA Cleanaway today congratulated Tracey Boyes, Cleanaway Executive General Manager Solid Waste, for her appointment as a Board Director.

Tracey Boyes joined Cleanaway as Executive General Manager, of Solid Waste Services, in February 2022, having considerable responsibility for all solid waste collection and resource recovery within the business. At the core of this activity is a commitment to achieving circularity – turning waste back into resources – while maintaining a strong focus on safety and culture.

Tracey has a considerable breadth of knowledge and experience in managing large-scale operations and particular expertise in driving value creation and innovation with a core focus on HSE and risk management, corporate strategy, and sustainability. Before joining Cleanaway, Tracey held senior and executive roles at several major ASX-listed companies.

Commenting on her appointment as Director of TOMRA Cleanaway, Tracey reflected on the positive outcomes being achieved by the organisation, Turning what some consider to be waste back into resources depends not only on the work we do at TOMRA Cleanaway but how the community supports and participates in our network operations,” said Tracey.

Through my role in Cleanaway, I get to see firsthand the passion our teams working in container deposit schemes have for their roles. These employees are amongst the most engaged across our company – because they believe in everything the scheme stands for, and therefore work hard to keep the network moving,” said Ms Boyes.

“My appointment as a Director of TOMRA Cleanaway provides me with direct involvement in a future focussed activity that combines behaviour change with the best resource recovery technology available – it is a really exciting time to be joining the business.”

TOMRA Cleanaway’s work with communities highlights the local element and importance of engaging with charities and social enterprises, and other grassroots organisations. Tracey Boyes is keenly aware of the importance of community engagement in developing meaningful and effective partnerships that help achieve change.

“I love the significant work TOMRA Cleanaway undertakes with social enterprises – like Resource Recovery Australia.  There are many opportunities for different groups and individuals to be involved in container return or deposit schemes, and we’re proud to play our part and make that happen.”

Tracey’s capability in building loyal and engaged teams through empowerment and support is an asset in delivering refreshed diversity to the TOMRA Cleanaway’s Board.  Tracey holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration majoring in accounting and commercial law, and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and New Zealand.
