By October 14, 2019 No Comments

In keeping with the Government’s commitment to fully equip Britannia Cleaning Services, the first 9 out of 21 new vehicles have been received by the Company. The induction course for Operatives was held last week, with another more detailed course programmed for the mechanical staff.

Minister for the Environment John Cortes commented: “I am very pleased that Britannia Cleaning Services have now received these vehicles, with more on the way. We promised this to the workforce, who we have always supported, and so we are providing the tools and equipment that they need to carry on with their work of making Gibraltar a cleaner place. I want to personally thank them for their patience and their commitment to the work that they do, that often goes unappreciated by many.”
