Quayclean Australia created history when it was awarded the cleaning, hygiene and waste management contract for Trinity Grammar College in Kew, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. It is the first time in the College’s 119-year history that it has outsourced its cleaning, hygiene and waste management services.
Quayclean’s contract win adds a further prestigious school to its education portfolio in Victoria and across Australia. Quayclean is the largest provider of cleaning and hygiene services across Australia managing contracts at leading private schools including Aquinas College, Brighton Grammar, St Catherine’s School, Fintona Girls’ School and Peninsula Grammar to name a few.
Trinity Grammar is attended by over 1500 boys and includes a Boarding School and an Indigenous student program managed by former three-time premiership winning Brisbane Lions AFL player, Chris Johnson.
Quayclean Chief Executive, Mark Piwkowski, said the new agreement represents a great opportunity for both Trinity Grammar and Quayclean staff.
“Throughout the COVID pandemic we have upgraded our contract services to health standard cleaning level. We will be elevating Trinity Grammar from being aesthetically clean to being hygienically clean,” said Piwkowski.
“We will also be supercharging the College’s waste management and sustainability systems and diverting the high majority of waste away from landfill. We aim to achieve a recycling rate of more than 80% over the next 12 months which represents a significant cost saving for Trinity,” he added.
Piwkowski said the introduction of new online systems and technologies at Trinity Grammar will allow Quayclean staff to further their skills and offer career advancement opportunities.
“All staff will receive expert training in using new technologies as well as training in areas such as the safe use of cleaning agents and chemicals,” explained Piwkowski.
“The upskilling of our staff will open the door for career progression within Quayclean to supervisor and manager roles. As a company, we are focused on creating positive cultural behaviours and are keen to promote staff from within,” added Piwkowski.
Trinity’s Director of Business, Mark Glover, commented; “The School went through an extensive procurement process and was very pleased with the competitive and qualitative review that saw the contract awarded to Quayclean. The company has an excellent reputation in the industry and will assist in ensuring the School meets not only all of the important risk and compliance requirements but also enabling a hygienic and Covid safe environment to be in place across our campuses.”
