A ST Kilda company is responsible for keeping Port Phillip clean and green. Port Phillip Council is using environmentally friendly technology to clean and maintain council buildings, libraries, welfare homes, public toilets and grounds.
Enzyme Wizard, a company based on Punt Rd, St Kilda, is supplying the council with natural enzyme based products which are all pH neutral, non-caustic and non-corrosive.
Port Phillip Mayor Amanda Stevens said the council started a six-month trial of the Enzyme Wizard products in August 2011.
‘‘Following positive feedback, we began introducing it into our community centres, child care centres and other sites,’’ Cr Stevens said.
‘‘We are now using this product in 98 per cent of council sites and from January we will be increasing this to 100 per cent.’’
Cr Stevens said Port Phillip was committed to ensuring the sustainability of what the council bought and procured for its operations and services.
‘‘We are particularly pleased that these products are natural and environmental friendly,’’ she said.
Enzyme Wizard director Jamie Flinkier said the business had been supplying products to restaurants, hotels, councils, cleaners, nursing homes, schools and fast-food outlets.
