The event began with a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony performed by Wurundjeri Elder Perry Wandin followed by an opening speech and official opening ceremony by CEO and Managing Director Vik Bansal.
Covering an area of 53,000 square meters, the Perry Road Office and Depot is a consolidation of Cleanaway’s business and operational teams, including the Victoria Post Collections leadership team, Commercial and Industrial and Municipal collections’ business, sales, administration, finance and fleet teams.
The open plan office layout accommodates over 300 staff, and provides spacious working areas, training rooms, changerooms, lunchrooms and amenities for Cleanaway drivers.
The site also houses a 20-bay workshop facility designed for safe work, vehicle compliance, and maximum productivity of our fleet, with paved parking areas for 164 collection vehicles and our new electric vehicle fleet. The site is also equipped with fuelling stations with 100,000 litre capacity, and automatic truck and parts washing bays.
Bringing together our administrative and operational teams from across Greater Melbourne is a key step forward to serving our customers better and making a sustainable future possible for communities across Australia.
