Street Cleaning Services
Over the past decade, idverde UK has pioneered the delivery of combined ‘Clean and Green’ services to Local Authorities.
We have demonstrated that in combining grounds maintenance with street cleaning services, clients can leverage the cost synergies that arise from the provision of multi-service contracts, without encountering the risks inherent in employing a non-specialist contractor on horticultural and landscapes maintenance services. We are therefore able to offer clients a truly best of both worlds solution in this regard.
An integrated Clean and Green service also has a number of other important benefits for clients. It is the intention of all local authorities to deliver a joined up service to its customers. idverde integrates its works planning so that features are maintained in a logical sequence, often on the same day. The propensity for a seemingly unplanned or un-integrated service leading to customer complaints is high. An example of this would be to get the planning and delivery of litter collection, grass cutting and street sweeping in the wrong order, which is often the case where these services are delivered by separate contractors.
A recent extension to the Clean and Green concept is to combine domestic waste collection with the clean and green services into one integrated service. idverde has entered into partnerships with environmental services specialists Veolia for our Northampton Borough Council contract and Biffa Waste Management Limited for our East Hampshire District Council and Winchester City Council contracts. In arrangements such as these, clients receive all of the cost benefits of a large multi-service contract whilst at the same time ensuring that each individual element of the service is delivered by industry experts.
