Quayclean prepares for AFL triple header at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium

Quayclean prepares for AFL triple header at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium
May 2, 2019

Leading cleaning and presentation company, Quayclean Australia, will invest over 2,500 labour hours to ensure fans enjoy their match day experience when Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium hosts a triple header of AFL this weekend.

Quayclean is preparing for the avalanche of fans who will produce over 40 tonnes of waste when Collingwood meets Port Adelaide on Friday night, Western Bulldogs host Richmond on Saturday, before Carlton faces North Melbourne on Sunday afternoon.

It is the second of four AFL triple headers scheduled for Marvel Stadium in 2019 and Quayclean Chief Executive, Mark Piwkowski, said detailed planning is underway to ensure the venue is well prepared.

Piwkowski advises “the fans match day experience at the Stadium commences from the moment they walk through the turnstiles, and it is our responsibility to ensure all areas of the venue is presented in a clean, safe and welcoming manner.

“This will involve over 2,500 hours of pre and post event cleaning to ensure the Stadium is ready for each match. This includes a tight turnaround from the Saturday night fixture where staff will work through the night and early morning to prepare the Stadium before the first bounce at 1.10pm on Sunday.

It is on these busy occasions where Quayclean’s operational skills and team shines, says Piwkowski.

“We have been developing our fully-employed workforce over the past five years with staff who know their work is judged by over 130,000 patrons. It is a great responsibility, but our team have amassed excellent skills and understand that the value of the patrons game day experience extends beyond the game itself.”

Quayclean’s General Manager Victoria, Tom Mills, said past AFL games provide great insight into what his staff can expect over the weekend.

Mills added “Friday night games have typically a party atmosphere where fans are celebrating the end of the working week with their friends and partners, and there is more waste associated with liquids.

“In contrast, the weekend games are more family orientated and there is more food waste. All waste is gathered and separated by Quayclean staff on site to ensure maximum levels of recycling,” he said.

“While each game is being played, our staff will be working behind the scenes emptying rubbish bins, mopping up spillages and refilling the 510 toilet cubicles with a total of around 1,850 rolls of toilet paper and 50 litres of hand soap over the weekend.”

At the same time games at C-Bus Super, The Gabba, Sydney Cricket Ground, Adelaide Oval, GMHBA Stadium, Lottoland and Netstrata Jubilee Stadium will make this a demanding weekend for Quayclean’s operations.
