About Us

Where Tropical Waste Services are now and where we have come from ….

Our great working relationships with many other Queensland Businesses ensures a solution is there for any liquid waste needs you have. We care about getting the job done right and having happy customers, it means they come back!

In 2004 after working in the industry for some time, Shane realised there was a need in Townsville for quality customer service and reliable supply of liquid waste removal services in many areas.

We cater for services such as septic tanks, festivals, events, building sites, large projects underway like the Ring Road, remote access operations and domestic functions.

He believed it needed a local blokes touch from someone who cared about the community.

Shane wanted to do everything right the first time and made sure he was registered and licensed with both the EPA and the Townsville City Council before commencing work in his first truck…….it was only once this important groundwork was done that Tropical Waste Services was born.

For many months there was just Shane and one very big old truck. He pumped septics, toilets, grease traps, boats, ships, wash bay pits large and small (taking phone calls from some very interesting places). Businesses came to realise he was reliable, always put the customer first AND he was a local bloke who answered the phone and responded to their need.

We have grown with the support of the people and the business community in Townsville and we remember each and every one who gave us the opportunity to prove ourselves.

Today Tropical Waste Services has a fleet of Vacuum Tankers, flat beds and delivery equipment dedicated to making our customers lives easier, cleaner……and less smelly!
