Sustainability & Business Model

At AnyJunk, we believe there are already enough waste collection vehicles on the road.  There’s no need to add any more – we just have to help the existing resource work more efficiently. So several years ago we closed down our own fleet and moved to our technology led model of partnering with local waste collection companies.  The outcome is less miles per collection, less trucks on the road and work & wages going to local businesses.

Clearabee’s business model on the other hand is focused on economies of scale and keeping operational cost as low as possible.  That means single man teams, lightweight trucks, long working days, lean management, and minimal infrastructure.  All the truck employees’ park their vans outside their homes overnight – rather than take them back to a depot, because Clearabee don’t have any depots.  Equally, employees receive hourly pay depending on how much work they get/ do each day – which keeps the fixed overhead down.

Clearabee Technology vs AnyJunk Technology

More Information About Clearabee

Clearabee was founded in 2012 and has its head office in Birmingham. It is owned by Daniel Long and Rob Linton. Clearabee’s collection vehicles comprise mainly Luton vans (like the ones used by removal firms for A to B removal work) and slide door transit vans (typically used by couriers for parcel delivery).  None of the vehicles are HGVs, which means no O license concerns or tachographs, but payload (ie. ability to carry weight) is limited.
