On demand, carbon neutral, clearance and recycling company Clearabee has taken the last warehouse at IM Properties The Hub scheme in Birmingham.
The company has taken a 22,000 ft2 warehouse where it intends to repair and recycle old sofa’s the first operation of its kind in the UK.
Rob Linton operations director and co-founder of Clearabee said the close proximity of The Hub to Birmingham city centre and the motorway network had played a crucial role in its decision to move to the prime industrial and distribution park.
“The Hub is easily accessible and offers excellent connectivity, which is ideal for our team and the new sofa recycling centre, as we aim to be as efficient as possible in our miles travelled.
“The new facility will provide both offices and a workshop space to repurpose the sofas we collect, assisting in promoting a circular economy and helping to plug the five per cent we have previously been unable to recycle at licensed centres.”
Clearabee operates nationwide and its sustainable approach to clearance and easy to book, online system has been instrumental in driving the business forward. It aims to recycle over 95 per cent of all materials it collects.
