Adelaide-based cleaning and waste management service provider Australian Green Clean has renewed its contract with the University of South Australia.
Australian Green Clean has held the contract for the past six years. With Australian Green Clean now engaged for up to 5 years, this will see 120 full-time and part-time staff clean the university’s four campuses across Adelaide and one in regional South Australia until 2021.
Australian Green Clean general manager Charlie Aykroyd said the company’s restructure of cleaning staff on-site was pivotal to retaining the university contract, as well as providing extra full-time work to team members.
“We continued to encourage daytime cleaning so university staff can build relationships with our cleaners. We also restructured how staff will carry out core cleaning duties by splitting that into study periods and ‘out-of-study’ periods so we could introduce a periodical cleaning team to increase efficiencies and improve outcomes.”
The University of South Australia will also introduce an environmental committee made up of students and staff members and managed by Australian Green Clean to introduce more sustainable options and initiatives at the university; an initiative suggested by Australian Green Clean.
“We are very focused on sustainability and want the university to implement new systems, such as implementing new waste streams so we can divert more waste from landfill.
“We suggested this to the university who are keen to get the committee started in the near future. We also thought getting stakeholders involved could create more traction and collaboration.”
