A vacant retail park site is like a magnet for the illegal dumping of waste material.
The now-closed Toys ‘R’ Us store in Croydon, Surrey became victim to fly-tipping and illegal occupation of the land before the premises had even been fully vacated, because no security had been arranged.
As the situation escalated and the squatters removed, Clearway was instructed to remove the tons of fly-tipped waste.
We secured the perimeter with multiple concrete barriers and the building’s entrance with steel security sheets and a Clearway keyless steel door.
After only two years of occupation by a tenant with lighter fuel addiction and mental health issues, this domestic property was left buried in rubbish, food, human waste and drug paraphernalia.
The local authority called in Clearway Services after two local cleaning companies refused the work.
Our environmental team transformed the property back to a safe, clean and habitable place to live, and were recognised for their hard work, caring nature and unwavering commitment with the following testimonial from our client:
“Thank you very much for an absolutely superb job. The team were amazing! They dealt with the tenant with the utmost respect and courtesy and the flat has been transformed. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone who needs them.”
When water began leaking into a tenant’s property on the top floor of a block of flats, it was immediately obvious there was a serious problem with the roof which, unusually, was completely covered with a roof garden.
The original plan to move the plants and soil and rubble from one side to the other in order to find the leak was abandoned and, instead, it was decided to embark on the massive task of clearing the entire roof garden so the roof could be repaired.
It took 14 men, 12 hours a day working 8 floors up for 5 days to remove 171 tons of material.
The soil and vegetation, handled one bucket at a time, was passed down a rubbish chute to the ground floor and then loaded on the trucks to be disposed of.
