Morclean on the way to green glory
Morclean has once again won a Green World Environment Award in the international campaign to find the world's greenest countries, companies and communities - for its award winning BinWash City machine.
Following previous success in 2014 and 2015 in the UK, Morclean competed against more than 500 other nominations in the International Green World Awards for Environmental Best Practice. Morclean's official New Zealand distributor is going to be collecting the trophy and certificate at a presentation ceremony in Christchurch, New Zealand, this month.
The trailer-mounted BinWash City is a new idea in the bin cleaning industry and has taken huge strides in improving what had historically been available. With worldwide emphasis on green and eco-friendly products, the Binwash City offers a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative for those who are conscious about their carbon footprint.
Morclean Director, Peter Morley, says: "We wanted to develop and launch a product that the environmentally-minded love, a concept that operators want to be part of, a machine that turns heads and one that offers more than just necessity and compliance."
The BinWash City is capable of cleaning two bins at any one time. Taking the hassle out of bin cleaning, it fits onto a towbar and can be towed by most vehicles. It also lifts the bins for you with its hydraulic lift system, meaning all you do is hook the bin on and clean it with the high-pressure hose attached. A machine will make the perfect start-up business package with no franchise, and the opportunity to earn up to £160,000 per year - and that's just from just one machine.
"The aim was to develop a smarter product that moves into a new direction as opposed to reworking the systems currently available," explains Peter. "The new City was developed so that Morclean could provide a totally new concept, which we feel is an extremely innovative and one that will reduce fuel, costs and C02 emission.
"We consider that this is an even better solution for the whole industry than what was previously available in the marketplace - both from ourselves and from our competitors."
Like many bin wash machines on the market today, recycling water and saving energy was a requirement rather than an innovation. Morclean's designers felt that machines were making savings for reasons of necessity, legislation and profit, as opposed to being totally innovative, so they intended to improve the machine and enable it to be powered totally by batteries instead of an engine.
As a result of this Green World Award success, Morclean has been invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement.
The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an international, independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environmental group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world. They are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
