Aberdeen's Tidy Green Clean team acquires Bin-Cleaned to Change the Face of Waste
Tidy Green Clean, the well-known, environmentally-friendly commercial cleaning business that operates on a franchise model, has acquired Aberdeen-based Bin-Cleaned, a residential wheelie bin and commercial bin cleaning service, with plans to take business national.
Andrew Alleway and David Moncur, owners of Tidy Green Clean, and one of their regional directors, Jake Robertson, have teamed up to purchase Bin-Cleaned from owner Mike McNee, who started the business over five years ago.
"I felt that I had taken the business as far as I could and when the owners of Tidy Green Clean approached me with the idea to purchase the business, it made a lot of sense and I'm looking forward to see how they change the business I founded in 2014, taking my idea and turning it into a much bigger business," recounts Mike McNee.
Bin-Cleaned formally relaunched as Bin Cleaned Commercial & Residential on 1st November 2020 and will see its residential service expanded with more routes offered, together with a larger commercial offering introduced during the first quarter of 2021.
Bin Cleaned Commercial & Residential provides regular cleaning for wheelie bins across residential areas of Aberdeen, to ensure they're sparkling and hygienically clean, with an environmental focus and an efficient service.
Andrew Alleway, one of the new owners, says:"We saw tremendous opportunities in Bin Cleaned and we have plans to bring it under the Tidy Green Clean umbrella over the next few months. We're excited to get to know Bin Cleaned's existing customers and we believe they're going to be interested and pleased with all the planned innovations to the service we will be bringing to them in the first half of 2021."
Tidy Green Clean uses digital, cloud-based technology to support its administration and operations and in time, Bin Cleaned will also benefit from a more streamlined approach that will make the cleaning schedule and payment options a lot easier for its customers.
Tidy Green Clean is the leading environmentally focused national franchise cleaning operation for blue chip organisations, and provides franchisees and master franchisees with the knowledge, training and support to be successful business owners, making the business model highly useful for those working within the facilities management industry.
It achieved IS0 9001; 14001; and 45001 in under three years and a place in the top UK franchises, the EF100 for 2020. Rooted in green practices and technologies, the business is focused on understanding its customers and employees, and how to be successful without that being at the expense of other people or the planet; the organisation is also a member of the Approved Franchise Association.
