The Cleaning Team of the Year Award 2017 has been launched to find the most dedicated and hard working cleaning teams in the public sector.
The awards are sponsored jointly by the Association of Building Cleaning Direct Service Providers (ABCD) and Denis Rawlins, and the aim is to recognise and promote team achievement.
ABCD General Secretary Pat Wherton said: “ the cleaning operative of the year award, which we ran previously, has been very successful, but both sponsors felt it was difficult choosing just one staff member for an award when it’s usually a team effort. This new award will highlight the level of commitment and hard work that is carried out on a daily basis to keep our public buildings clean, and I’m sure we will get a very high caliber of entry.”
Council’s in membership of ABCD are eligible to take part and must submit a written application by 12th February 2017.
The finalists will be visited during March, and the presentation of all award categories with be made at the ABCD AGM in Harrogate in May 2017.
