Green leaves Clearabee and the Environment

Carbon neutral and almost nothing goes to waste

As the UK’s largest clearance company and a national waste management company we take our environmental obligations very seriously. From our bespoke aluminium chassis vehicles (thereby reducing weight and CO2) to the planting of our own brand new forest (6,500 trees), we’re making sure we’re setting standards for the industry when it comes to handing your rubbish.

The Clearabee forest,
Nether Kidston

Nether Kidston is Clearabee’s first woodland carbon project. It is a non-intervention native woodland with over 6,500 native broadleaved trees over a 10 acre site. This project is expected to offset over 2,200 tonnes of carbon. In addition to carbon, the forest provides benefits to local biodiversity and habitat as well as improvements to the flood mitigation profile of the downstream area.

Clearabee is committed to planting thousands of new trees every single year, offsetting substantially more carbon than we generate through our own operations.

We make sure our day
to day is as green as possible

Whilst we offset our carbon with our own UK carbon schemes, we know how important it is to actually reduce our carbon too and are always looking at innovative ways of going green. Our office runs on only renewable energy, our new vehicles are built on bespoke lightweight chassis and our routes are further optimised through our bespoke AI powered routing system. Additionally our drivers are assisted through real time driver behaviour monitoring, encouraging them to drive as safely and environmentally friendly as possible.

Reducing
driving miles

With a fleet of over 100 vehicles operating from over 100 unique locations, we’re never far from our next job. We don’t operate traditional depots, reducing our CO2 substantially through reduced mileage. Our average vehicle age is a little over 1 year, meaning our fleet is modern (nearly all EURO 6) and built on the lightest chassis possible.

Recycling

We use over 600 recycling locations across the country, meaning we’re always recycling locally and reducing mileage. We only use locations with the best recycling rates and select the most suitable location based off of the waste we collect, which could include an anaerobic digestion plant for food waste, a materials recovery facility for bulky waste, or a composting centre for green waste.
