A part of the community: Glen Eira Street sweeping services renewed

by Citywide | 11.05.2015
“The team did a fantastic job and thoroughly cleaned the street. It is so clean that I can eat my breakfast off it.”

These are the words of a happy Glen Eira resident. Citywide has been providing street sweeping services to the City of Glen Eira for 14 years, and has worked closely with the Council to deliver a high-standard of service based on excellent communication and dependability. Citywide recently re-won this contract for a minimum of seven years.

Many of the Citywide employees that make up the Glen Eira team are locals and have been servicing this community for many years, including the Supervisor Dashmir Iljazi who has been a member of the contract team for the entire 14 years. Having a committed and long-standing team that are familiar with each other results in communicating together more effectively and operating more efficiently, and this is a perfect example of that theory in action.

Over the years the team has consistently received good feedback from both the Council and members of the community: “… the driver returned today to clear any debris remaining from Monday, the resident was very pleased to see the driver get out and clear sections by hand. Concerns about the street backing up and flooding during rainstorms are completely alleviated.”

The collective knowledge the Citywide team has acquired is invaluable to delivering this important contract for the community of Glen Eira. As Business Manager Peter Gilbert said: “Our team has built a knowledge base that no other organisation could accumulate. We know so much about the community. We know what times sporting clubs meet and train, we know which lane-ways have recurring problems and we know who to talk to about solving issues in the community.”


Street sweeping - Citywide


Citywide provides street sweeping and cleansing services to numerous commercial customers and councils including Queen Victoria Market, City of Melbourne, City of Bayside, City of Maribyrnong and City of Moonee Valley. Citywide has the largest fleet of commercial sweepers for road sweeping, profile sweeping, car parks and mechanical scrubbing in Victoria. The Environmental team has a reputation for the rapid response and operates a 24-hour 7-day service.

Adding further value to the company’s services, Citywide has recently installed Australia’s first Street Sweeping Recycling Plant. The Plant will recycle and reuse material collected from street sweeping and drainage operations. This will help councils achieve their own waste reduction targets, and will reduce negative impact on the environment by deferring up to 80 per cent of collected street sweeping waste from landfill.
