Clean Up Business Day in Sydney & Melbourne!

To kick off the autumn program of our Green Initiatives, Markitforce participated in Clean Up Business Day at our Sydney and Melbourne operations on Tuesday 1st March 2011.
In addition to the obvious fun, and team building nature of the day, it was a great opportunity for us to clean up our operation and conserve the environment in a positive way.
We had loads of volunteers and plenty of hidden ‘gems’ were found, highlights of which included; car batteries, the inside of a washing machine, an oven draining tray and beer bottles galore! There was loads of rubbish which we recycled wherever possible. Hopefully Clean Up Business Day 2012 will be even bigger and better!!
