How are we
Offsetting our carbon emissions?
The planet and the environment has always been at the forefront of the Clearabee business and will continue to play a huge part.
From our carbon offsetting projects to ambitious new initiatives involving our own waste processing facilities, here we’ll showcase everything we are doing and plan to in the future.
Clearabee and the environment
From our bespoke aluminium chassis vehicles to the planting of our brand new forests, we’re making sure we’re setting standards for the industry when it comes to handling your rubbish.
Trees planted since 2018 across three UK based forests
Locations meaning driving distance between each job is very low
Landfill diversion rate across the UK on average
Over 40,000 trees & counting
One of our larger efforts to become a carbon-neutral company is through our Clearabee forests. Collectively, we have planted over 43,000 trees at multiple sites across the UK. As well as our strive to cut the carbon we emit, our forests go a long way in offsetting the emissions that are produced.
In the future, we hope to rely on offsetting less as we reduce our emissions. In the meantime, we work with Forest Carbon, an organisation leading the way in developing woodland creation and peatland restoration. As well as being forecasted to remove thousands of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere, Forest Carbons’ work helps improve habitats which supports biodiversity and ecosystems. Forest Carbon is also accredited by the Woodland Carbon Code, a government-backed organisation that ensures green developments meet certain standards.

OUR CARBON IMPACT
Reducing carbon emissions
As well as offsetting the carbon we emit, we strive to reduce what we output in the first place.
Our van teams are stationed across the country which allows us to make short and efficient journeys to our rubbish collection jobs and then to local waste transfer stations.
On average our vans travel no more than 10 miles per job and that distance is always decreasing as we continue to grow.
Our drivers are supported by our office staff who help plan routes to optimise every mile in which our vans are travelling on the road. Cameras are installed onto all our vans to ensure every team is compliant with waste regulations and driving as efficiently as possible.
In 2021 >99% of jobs were completed by our Clearabee team
Modern Euro 6 fleet on lightweight chassis further reduces carbon
Each vehicle has 5 live cameras installed, across the fleet
Over 150 owned vehicles in our expanding fleet
In-house vehicle maintenance technicians, tools and facilities
in-vehicle tech improves driver standards
Reducing, recycling & reuse
We have launched a specialist facility where we are processing bulky waste. This includes working with various charities as well as repairing and cleaning sofas ready for resale and deconstructing mattresses.
Our reuse facility allows us to effectively segregate waste we collect using our own in-house teams to ensure that as much as possible is recovered and reused or repaired.
600+ sites nationwide so we always recycle locally
95% landfill diversion on average across the UK
100% sites audited to ensure quality and compliance
We have been making significant investments in our in-house recycling capabilities"
