Who Are We?
The Whelan group of companies has been involved in waste and recycling for over 120 years. Commencing in 1892, the company grew as Melbourne prospered and the name “Whelan the Wrecker” became synonymous with the changing landscape of the city. By the 1960’s, Melbourne had changed dramatically and, with an unprecedented phase of major construction occurring within the CBD, a need for a streamlined and systematised approach to waste management was called for from within the building industry.

The History of Kartaway
The Whelan group of companies commenced activity in 1892. James Paul Whelan started up his Cartage Company that year in East Brunswick, Melbourne. Initially the Whelan business was as a general carrier delivering goods of all sorts around Melbourne (Population approx. 490,000). As time passed, the company focused on the demolition of buildings and the transport and resale of second hand materials from demolished buildings. This would become the main trade of the company. The 1890’s were a time of great tribulation with the boom times coming to an end and many banks and businesses collapsing, but remarkably James Paul Whelan prospered in the difficult times and the business he set up in went from strength to strength, becoming a household name known famously as ‘Whelan the Wrecker’.
Amazing service. They helped us to know what size bin we would need, delivered the next day and let us have the bin for as long as we needed and then when we called for a pick up it was gone within 24 hours. They were able to position the bin exactly where we needed it, even with our steep driveway. Definitely will use for all our future bin needs!
Very positive experience. They were able to deliver a skip on the day I requested it and it was removed promptly a week later. Professional, helpful service from staff over the phone and from the driver delivering the skip. Our driveway is narrow with retaining walls on either side. The driver was careful to ensure he didn't damage anything while driving up and down the driveway.
