Our latest acquisition is a small but powerful cleaning machine! If you see a little green car powering through the shopping centre, along footpaths or cleaning bins you will know it is our outdoor staff busy at work. It is an environmentally friendly, solar powered, cleaning machine. It will be busy giving our city a good scrub in coming weeks from bus shelters, pavements, street furniture to garbage bins and even removing some graffiti and posters. And residents will know exactly what we are up to as it comes with a variable message board which Council staff can change depending on the task. If it is in Botany or Mascot Shopping strips you will know it is cleaning pavers, or removing chewing gum and scum, or cleaning the bins. I am very excited about the new addition, which should be rolled out in the next two weeks.
When I first saw it, the name “Shrek” came to mind, but I don’t think Dreamworks, the movie’s producers, would give us the copyright for that! So I think the “kids” (no age limit) in our community should come up with name. Be creative and let your imagination run wild!
