Australian-owned cleaning, hygiene and waste management company, Quayclean, is aspiring towards a commendable 85 percent recycling rate after receiving the cleaning and presentation contract for four New South Wales venues. 

Spurred into action by a cleaning and presentation contract with Venues NSW, Quayclean Australia is gearing up to achieve ambitious recycling goals and deliver an exceptional attendee experience at four stadiums in New South Wales – Accor Stadium at Homebush, CommBank Stadium in Parramatta, and WIN Stadium and Entertainment Centre in Wollongong.

Quayclean takes on a big yet rewarding task, as Accor Stadium boasts an 85,000 capacity and played host to the 2000 Olympics, alongside the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals, State of Origin, Bledisloe Cup, and Socceroos and Matildas football internationals. 

Additionally, CommBank stadium has a 30,000-seated capacity and is the home ground for the Parramatta Eels in the NRL.

Quayclean is no stranger to embracing the challenges that come with waste management at large-capacity venues – the company is contracted to the SCG, Allianz Stadium, and Newcastle’s McDonald Jones Stadium in NSW.

Environmentally responsible solutions owed to collaboration and teamwork

Accepting the cleaning and presentation contract has encouraged Quayclean to trial innovative systems, technologies and resources to not only maximise labour efficiency but also adhere to six of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Quayclean CEO Mark Piwkowski says guaranteeing superb attendee experience through environmentally progressive solutions and meticulous attention to detail is paramount. 

“We believe the quality of work performed by our teams, together with their dedicated work ethic and commitment, will provide a superior service for the hundreds of thousands of fans who will attend events at these four venues each year,” says Piwkowski.

Ongoing stakeholder engagement, reporting and education  

Quayclean will devise a recycling plan for property, catering, grounds, and food-related activities via consultations with venue managers and associated stakeholders. The company is also eager to ensure stakeholder education, reporting and engagement is an ongoing process. 

“We will set new benchmarks for environmental and sustainability standards by adopting the three Rs – reduce, reuse, and recycle,” says Piwkowski. 

Additional goals include approaching contamination elimination via an organic matter lens and reaching a total absence of non-recyclable materials such as single-use plastics.

Venues NSW general manager for safety, security and facilities Johnny Naofal confirmed the network’s faith in Quayclean to aim high.

“Quayclean’s commitment is important to Venues NSW, the NSW Government, and those who play and perform at our venues, and most importantly, the people who fill the stands to watch,” says Naofal.
