Have you seen our new Service Crew?

While visiting your local shopping centre it may have been hard to ignore our new Service Crew dressed in eye-catching fluoro orange.

The conspicuous new crew members have become regular visitors to our shopping centres since last November doing activities such as on-the-spot repairs and removing graffiti, chewing gum and weeds in a bid to make our shopping centres more attractive.

The initiative to improve the way we take care of our shopping centres has been a welcome complement to the current shopping centre maintenance program by offering more immediate service for traders and shoppers.

What our Service Crew is doing:

  • cleaning bins outside and inside
  • pressure washing pathways and laneways
  • removing chewing gum off street furniture and footpaths
  • conducting safety audits on footpaths
  • checking the health of street trees
  • weed spraying around posts, fences and footpaths
  • removing graffiti from street furniture, street signs and hydrants
  • removing illegal posters
  • spray painting bollards and posts 
  • picking up litter along strips, car parks and garden beds
  • sweeping up debris caught in gutters and under bins
  • straightening up signs, posts and bins.

The devoted crew has proved to be a big hit with shoppers, traders and visitors.

I’ve been a Boroondara resident for 35 years. I think it’s an excellent idea - Peter, Boroondara local

This is a great and much needed service, and a fantastic initiative from the City of Boroondara - Greythorn Amcal Pharmacy

I think they keep the streets nice and clean, we’ve been really happy with them - Hairhouse, Camberwell
