We offer councils and contractors the ability to completely remove chewing gum at the rate of up to 700 pieces per hour, in public view.
It is an extremely safe process that uses less than 3 litres of water per hour and leaves no residues behind. One litre of water becomes 1500 litres of vapour steam.
Brisbane City Council has 2 GRV's on Brisbane streets and has been negotiating a commercial agreement with Gum Removal Vehicle and an innovation patent is in place for this world first.
The extreme water efficiency of the equipment was recently assessed by Commerce Queensland to be over 99 per cent water efficient.

Gum Removal Vehicle | Keeping Australia Beautiful
GRV- Gum Removal Vehicle Pty Ltd is a Queensland company determined to educate the public to the gum pollution problem as well eradicate the problem using the world-accepted best practise for gum removal, super heated vapour steam.
This process uses less than 3 litres of water per hour.
By combining a number of tools in a unique manner we have a high profile, fully mobile, educational, environmental vehicle that looks great and does a fantastic job.
GRV (Gum Removal Vehicle) is a phrase that was first used by the late Alan Hess, Waste Minimisation Manager of Brisbane City Council a man who will be sorely missed.
In discussions with Steam Australia Queensland regarding inner city gum pollution we conceived and built a prototype vehicle which was designed for Brisbane City Council.
The prototype was approved within 30 minutes of the demonstration and GRV was born.
