Indigenous Relations - PTES
Solid Waste Management1PT Environmental Services (PTES) is an incorporated Pilbara Aboriginal Business owned by Geoff Stocker (formerly Pilbara Logistics) and Tox Free Australia Pty Ltd (Toxfree) delivering a range of multi-disciplined environmental services for Clients in the Mining, Oil & Gas, Residential and Commercial Sectors in the Pilbara.

The Joint Venture has evolved significantly over the last four years, with the PTES vision becoming a reality, by continuing to create opportunities for Aboriginal people, whether through employment or business and in parallel provide a safe, reliable and sustainable service to Clients.

The PTES workforce now consists of over 100 people (with 38% being Aboriginal) within the Pilbara who represent a large cross section of multidisciplinary skills. With a mature and diverse strategy, PTES focus on key aspects such as cultural awareness, life skills training, mentoring, community relations and Traditional Owner engagement. Without understanding the key concepts, PTES would not have maintained the high level of Indigenous employment currently experienced within the business.

For our full range of services please see the PTES Capability Statement below.
