Brisbane City Council recently introduced state-of-the-art electric powered, self-propelled Glutton vacuum unit into its city cleansing fleet.
Building on its phenomenal success — both internationally and throughout Australia and New Zealand — the latest chapter in the remarkable Glutton success story has seen the first of several of the eco-friendly electric-powered Glutton waste vacuum units commissioned by Brisbane City Council's City Cleansing Fleet.
Commissioned by Brisbane City Council earlier this year, the Glutton unit is already having a major positive impact on street cleansing throughout the Brisbane CBD (including Brisbane Square and the Queen Street Mall) as well as throughout the popular Fortitude Valley dining and entertainment precinct.
Not surprisingly, as is the case with other Glutton units now operating throughout Australia and New Zealand, the new Brisbane City Council unit is generating significant interest and winning wide-spread praise for its design and performance — from operators, local residents, local business owners, and even a number of other councils in the south-east Queensland region, particularly when it comes to micro-litter including cigarette butts.
lmportantly, as a fully-electric powered unit, the Glutton vacuum unit is in keeping with the council's green commitment to make Brisbane a carbon neutral city by 2026.
It is also in line with the council’s sustainability policy, which focuses on providing a clean and green city that is smart, prosperous, accessible, inclusive, creative and healthy, and that leads the region by example.
