On-demand rubbish removal business, Clearabee, has been awarded a three-year contract to provide reactive waste removal services to the Co-op.
As part of the “multi-million pound” contract, Clearabee will handle all unplanned waste removal requirements for the Co-op’s retail and funeral care businesses across the UK.
This will involve on-demand removal of bulky waste at the Co-op’s 2,500 retail stores and 1,000 funeral homes nationwide.
The contract is one of Clearabee’s biggest commercial deals to date, with an excess of 5,000 waste collections anticipated per year. Requests will be serviced by Clearabee’s in-house team of 250 people and fleet of 100 vehicles located across the UK.
Established in 2012, the Birmingham-based firm describes itself as the UK’s largest “on-demand rubbish removal service operating entirely through its own in-house team”.
Commenting on the contract award, Daniel Long, founder and managing director at Clearabee, said: “This deal further demonstrates our ability to serve major retail organisations at scale and we are delighted to have been appointed by the Co-op. Our innovative approach and nationwide reach means we can respond rapidly and efficiently to the Co-op’s waste removal requests, and cut its cost associated with removing unplanned rubbish.”
