Quayclean Australia CEO, Mark Piwkowski, said the company was focused on helping educate its customers and assist with the development of waste management knowledge and skills that lead towards reduction in waste being produced and achieve higher levels of recycling from collected waste.
“Our skill and knowledge must continue to develop and evolve not just as experts in site presentation, sanitisation and hygiene, but also as a significant leader in action against climate change creating sustainable work environments,” said Piwkowski.
