A four-week cleaning blitz will take place across Greater Shepparton commencing on Saturday 16 May and funded by the State Government’s $500M Working for Victoria initiative as part of the state-wide response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The purpose of Working for Victoria Cleaning Blitz is twofold, to provide employment opportunities for people who have lost their job due to the economic impacts of coronavirus, as well as, enabling the deep cleaning of public assets to further assist with slowing the spread of coronavirus.
The Victorian Government has engaged cleaning services throughout the state to assist with cleaning and disinfecting high foot-traffic areas such as local shopping strips, retail districts, parks and open public spaces.
The cleaning will support the work already being undertaken by Council, and provide much needed short-term employment for members of our community.
Locally, the cleaning and disinfecting will be delivered by Cleanaway Shepparton. Cleanaway will be working during daylight hours, seven days a week for the four weeks starting Saturday 16 May.
Cleanaway’s areas of focus will include traffic light buttons and poles, signs and poles, street and park benches, handrails, front door handles and the exterior of public toilets.
