Quayclean announces expansion to its education portfolio

Quayclean Australia has secured the cleaning contracts to five additional Colleges in a boost to its education portfolio.

The national cleaning services provider will manage the cleaning, waste management and hygiene services for The Scots College (NSW), Bunbury Catholic College (WA), Grace Lutheran College (Qld), Mentone Girls Grammar (Vic) and St Bede’s College (Vic) under new arrangements that commenced at the start of the school year.
Quayclean operated more than 90 private schools and institutes across the country, including a suite of major public venues and stadia.

The Scots College is the third Great Public Schools (GPS) school in Sydney now under Quayclean’s care, in addition to Shore School and St Joseph’s College.
Quayclean CEO Mark Piwkowski said the company had rebuilt its workforce since the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and has continued to offer growth and career opportunities to its team through the Quay Academy. 

He said the implementation of effective resource recovery and waste management practices at schools, colleges and institutes was important in influencing the sustainability attitudes of future generations.

“We are passionate about our customers, our staff, and the environment and implementing sustainable waste management practices,” Mr Piwkowski said.

“A key element of Quayclean’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) philosophy is to make a difference to the communities and facilities where we operate.

“Apart from providing schools, colleges and institutes with a clean and safe operating environment, our onsite teams play an important indirect role in educating students and staff about waste management streams and sustainability practices.”

Reflecting on the mounting pressure on Australia to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set by the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Piwkowski said: “…as a community, we are becoming increasingly aware of our responsibility towards environmental matters and sustainability”.
“Quayclean supports all 17 UN SDGs and adopts six goals which are aligned and relevant to its core daily operations,” he said.

Quayclean employs more than 5000 people across Australia.
