Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city and has several attractions that see thousands of both local and international tourists visit this beautiful city every year. The sub-tropical climate is just perfect all year round and it’s a city that prides greatly in its cleanliness. Interesting fact; Brisbane is ranked among top 10 cleanest cities across the world and the cleanest in the country, rightly earning its title as Australia’s “new world” city.
Among the top-rated attractions you can look forward to seeing on your next visit include the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the beautiful Mount Coot-tha Botanical gardens and the Moreton Island among others. Brisbane is also a cultural hub with monumental and interesting cultural attractions, the biggest of which is the Cultural Centre that is home to a performing arts studio and Centre, a state library and art galleries. There are also plenty of accommodation options from luxury hotels to budget hotels all across the city so you do not have to worry about finding a place to stay during your visit.
With so many exquisite sights and sounds to experience, what you can be sure of not seeing is unsightly heaps of litter and dirt on the Brisbane streets as you move to and from the various attractions. The “new world city” title does not come easy and the city has truly exerted every effort to meet this standard. It’s a green city with every resident doing their part in keeping the city clean, with an emphasis on recycling.
Away from individual effort driven by conscious behavior, the local council of Brisbane as played a great role in ensuring the city is clean and stays clean at all times. Part of the strategy has been investing in street and road sweeping services. Service providers are vetted in a competitive tender process and providers who can prove that they will provide the best sweeping services become the ultimate winner in a process that is proudly non-biased.
Vetting points include the experience of the company, and the capacity of the company to handle a job of a large magnitude such as municipal sweeping. This means that the company must be thoroughly equipped with the relevant types of machinery including ride-ons, walk behind sweepers and scrubber sweepers among others. All these must be commercial grade equipment from reputable manufacturers and can get the job done right, every time.
The council through collaborative efforts with selected road and street sweeping contractors makes the process all the more productive by investing in more sweeping runs and increased hours per run. With such an elaborate plan, it is no wonder the city is so clean.
Going through dirty streets can truly dampen your experience of a city, regardless of how amazing the actual tourist attractions may be. Taking the “it’s not about the destination, but about the journey’ cliché quite literally, the journey to and from these attractions is also just as important. The city of Brisbane has gone above and beyond with the best road and street sweeping to ensure that everyone, local or tourist, truly enjoys the journey as much as the destination.
