Innovative Service Delivery
JJ’s Waste places significant emphasis on promoting continuous innovation to improve service quality and protect the safety of staff, customers and the environment. The Company believes that the people who know the most about specific tasks/jobs are the employees that are undertaking them on a daily basis. It is for this reason JJ’s Waste has facilitated the use of consultative workgroups and team briefing meetings to allow for two-way communications between staff and management. Employees are encouraged to make suggestions with regards to:
- Plant/equipment design and operation
- Bin placement
- Collection methods
- Documentation modifications (run sheets, corrective action requests etc.)
- Work procedures/practice notes
Health and safety
- Customer’s sites
JJ’s Waste is committed to providing our customers with the most sustainable waste recover/disposal options. One recent innovation has been the inclusion of G-Force at our Wacol facility. G-Force is able to treat used oil, oily waters and sludges to produce oil that is suitable for re-refining. The technology G-Force provides is the first of its kind in Australia, enabling JJ’s Waste to provide a more comprehensive used oil collection and treatment service to our customers. To further our commitment to providing true lube to lube recycling, JJ’s Waste partnered with Southern Oil Refineries to construct the Northern Oil Re-Refinery in Gladstone, Qld which is capable of re-refining 100 million litres of used oil per year. In addition, JJ’s Waste has partnered with a number of like-minded organisations to provide a wide range of waste recovery and conversion technologies.
