The prestigious presentation ceremony is to be held at the Houses of Parliament on November 11th,where we will be presented with our awards and will be able to network with other like-minded companies who realise the importance of helping the environment.
About the Green Apple Awards
The Green Apple Environment Awards were established in 1994 as an annual campaign to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world.
The Green Apple Awards scheme was one of the first to be accredited by the RSA as an official feeder scheme into the European Business Awards for the Environment,
and is still one of only a handful of accredited campaigns.
Previous Green Apple Award winners have gone on to win European awards, and many have taken on the status of International Green Hero by helping others around
the world to help the environment.

Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice
Houses of Parliament, London
On 10th November 2014 Morclean collected a national environmental award for their Binwash City, from the Houses of Parliament.
Morclean scooped the prestigious Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice at a ceremony at the Houses of Parliament in London, for their battery operated wheelie bin-cleaning machine.
Morclean launched the first Wheelie Bin Cleaning Machine as a petrol version in late 2012; due to the popularity of the first range of machines, Morclean have been developing a brand new, innovative battery operated bin-cleaning machine since. The City battery machine is a totally new idea in the bin cleaning industry and takes huge steps forward to improve what is currently available. With worldwide emphases on green and eco-friendly products, the Binwash City offers a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to those conscious about their carbon footprint.
Morclean Director, Peter Morley, said “We wanted to develop and launch a product that the environmentally minded love, a concept that operators want to be part of, a machine that turns heads and offers more than just necessity and compliance.”
The Binwash City is a battery operated wheelie bin wash cleaning machine, capable of cleaning two bins at any one time. It takes all the hassle out of bin cleaning, as this handy machine fits onto a tow bar and can be towed by most vehicles. It also lifts the bins for you with its hydraulic lift system, meaning all you do is hook the bin on and clean it with the high-pressure hose attached. The bin cleaning machines make the perfect start up business package with no franchise, and the opportunity to earn up to £160,000 per year from just one machine.
Peter went on to say, “The aim was to develop a smarter product that moves into a new direction as opposed to re-working the systems currently available.
“The new CITY was developed so that Morclean could provide a totally new concept, which we feel is an extremely innovative and product that will reduce fuel, costs and C02 emission.
“We consider that this is an even better solution for the whole industry than what was previously available in the market place – both from ourselves and our competitors.”
Like many bin wash machines on the market today, recycling water and saving energy was a requirement rather than an innovation. Morclean felt that machines were making savings for reasons of necessity, legislation and profit as opposed to being totally innovative. So, they tried to excel and improve the machines totally powered from batteries instead of an engine.
Morclean would like to thank the Green Apple Awards for their recognition in what is a niche market sector. The awards were well attended and a great night was had by all; we hope the Binwash City is as well received as our original, petrol driven Bin Wash machine.
