This support includes additional and specialised cleaning before, during and after the events. Many of these events are televised around the world and it is important that the event precincts and surrounding areas are presented in pristine condition.
City of Gold Coast ensures public facilities and barbecues in our high usage parks and foreshore areas are cleaned daily.
City officers strive to provide cleaning services in a reliable, quick and cost efficient manner across the Gold Coast.
