Australian-owned cleaning and presentation company, Quayclean Australia, has been awarded the cleaning contract for four Blacktown City Council sport and leisure sites.
The agreement with Council sees Quayclean responsible for cleaning services at Blacktown International Sportspark, Blacktown Aquatic Centre, Charles Lowles Leisure Centre at Emerton and Blacktown Leisure Centre at Stanhope.
Quayclean Australia CEO, Mark Piwkowski, said the company was excited to be working in partnership with one of NSW’s biggest Councils.
“These council-operated sites are major showpiece venues and attract a high number of visitors every year. Our staff take pride in their innovative, customer-focussed work and we are determined all attendees to these venues enjoy a memorable experience,” said Piwkowski.
Piwkowski said waste and sustainability initiatives will be a major focus over the three-year contract term.
“Apart from the obvious environmental advantages of reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, there are great savings to be made with effective waste separation,” he said.
“The cost of landfill is over $340 per tonne while recycled product can be as low as $200 per tonne, so we will be working closely with Council to ensure high recycling targets,” he added.
Blacktown City Council Mayor, Councillor Stephen Bali MP, said Quayclean’s vast experience with major sites, and its industry-leading fully-employed working model were strong features of its tender.
“Quayclean has vast experience across the sport and leisure industry including managing 11 venues at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games,” said Mayor Bali.
In NSW, Quayclean also services the Sydney Opera House, the SCG, Fox Studios, Sydney Olympic Park precinct, and NSW Office of Sport and Recreation venues.
Quayclean is also contracted to Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, the Gabba in Brisbane and Cbus Stadium on the Gold Coast, plus racecourses in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Earlier this month the company was awarded a five-year cleaning and presentation contract to Adelaide Oval.
The service provider also manages cleaning and presentation for the South Australian Jockey Club at Morphettville, the Adelaide Festival Trust Centre and the South Australian Aquatic Centre.
Quayclean is one of the largest independent operators across the country, servicing more than 90 major public venues across Australia and directly employs more than 1200 full-time, permanent part-time and casual labour personnel.
