The award winning environmental support services group operates across the South and London from three sites in Sussex, with four divisions including road sweepers, a waste recycling centre and groundworks and installations. You may have spotted the organisations’ bright yellow tankers on the roads (they’re hard to miss!) which are part of the vast fleet of specialist vehicles that are operated 24/7 by fully qualified and accredited staff all year round.
In the early days the business was less visible, as Mike recalls, ”We launched CountyClean Environmental Services Ltd in 2007 as a liquid waste management start-up operating one tanker and Debbie managed customer bookings and all business administration from a small cabin office on a farm just outside of Eastbourne. Since the beginning, we have gone through various evolutionary phases from servicing domestic jobs to taking on more largescale and specialist projects. In the main however, the key to our success has been exceptional customer service and making the most of opportunities when they have arisen.
“As well as carrying out work for major blue chip clients, commercial, industrial and domestic customers, we were at the forefront of highlighting major blockages when we discovered one of the largest fatbergs ever found in a UK sewer which we removed for our client Thames Water.”
CountyClean’s reputation has grown and regardless if clients have a pump station that needs servicing, a grease trap emptying or hazardous liquid waste removing – they all have one thing in common, and that is that they need an efficient and cost-effective solution to their problem before it becomes a much more serious issue.
CountyClean Group, Director, Debbie Walker said: “Through our commitment to providing the highest quality of service, we have become one of the South’s fastest growing environmental support services companies within just over a decade. We are so proud of what we have achieved and are grateful to our customers, local communities and our teams.”
In turn, the group’s positive work ethic extends to local business communities and charities with high profile networking events and fundraising activities being organised regularly, such as the company’s showcase film launch in February and Debbie’s double sky diving feat in May.
It’ll definitely be worth keeping your eye on this organisations’ developments as Mike adds: “Our journey over the past decade has of course had its ups and downs – especially in the first few years, but I wouldn’t change a thing, as ultimately I believe that without challenges we can’t progress, and I’m proud of what we have created. We are very excited about what the future holds for CountyClean and look forward to exponentially raising our profile throughout the South whilst making significant progress on our national growth aspirations.”
