KS Environmental: From A Sow’s Ear
Ted Smith began the K&S Waste business in 1967, collecting food waste for the family-owned pig farm from hotels and cafes around Melbourne. Ted could see the future of the waste removal industry, and by 1999, K & S Waste was a market leader in waste removal and disposal in Melbourne.
A New Generation in Waste Management
Fast-forward to 2004, and the company began cutting a new path. Our name was changed to KS Environmental, and we added a wider range of environmentally sustainable waste management services to reflect our commitment to environmental management. While now, in 2022, we have grown to service over 3000 clients with over 70 vehicles and employ over 60 staff members, our business vision remains the same.
To be the premier provider of waste and recycling services in the Melbourne metropolitan area by providing a flexible, reliable and high-quality service for our customers.
We have a diverse mix of clients coming from a broad range of industries, including sporting and entertainment venues, educational institutions, municipal councils, restaurants and catering venues, shopping centres, as well as smaller general businesses and the manufacturing sector.
The KS Environmental Group has grown significantly over the years but is still situated on the same premises in Dingley. Here, we house our fleet of vehicles, along with full mechanical and manufacturing workshops, and perform customer service/administration functions.
