We’re delighted to announce that Just Clear has been shortlisted as Independent Operator of the Year 2018 at The National Recycling Awards 2018. Congratulations to all the other finalists who, like us, want to make a difference. The MRW National Recycling Awards 2018 recognises and celebrates best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management.
Our fundamental goal for Just Clear is “zero-to-landfill”, making sure that reuse and recycling is prioritised in every job we undertake.
When we set the task of reaching a zero-to-landfill status eight years ago, we decided to implement a bottom-up approach, educating the collection teams about our long term desires, and letting them come up with ideas. They had many, and they helped design the system that we use today. Instead of barking orders at them, we let them develop the ideology themselves, with our guidance, and this then filtered back up through the business and to everyone who works here at Just Clear. This ideology is so strong now that when our teams are out clearing properties, customers become genuinely interested by all of the sustainability information that our teams openly share. People must be informed before they can become involved. This has seen us become referred for jobs countless times, especially within the environmentally conscious community, who see us as a logical outlet for their clearance. Don’t doubt that a group of concerned and dedicated people can change the world, it’s the only thing that really can.
Our carbon footprint in 2017 was at an all-time low. Download our award winning policy document here.
