But the equipment not only destroys gum - it can also be used to clean and sanitise everything from toilets, showers, street furniture, bins and it can even pick up cigarette butts.
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.
