Staff from a Surrey pest control company are celebrating after winning the Best Green Business at the South London Business Awards and being named as a finalist in the Commitment to the Community category.
Kenley-based Cleankill Environmental Services beat hundreds of other companies from across South London to win the award for its efforts to be green.
Cleankill Managing Director Paul Bates said: “For the last few years, striving to be greener has been one of our top priorities and to think that a firm that is involved in our sort of business can be recognised in this way is fantastic. We’ve being doing things like using Boris’ bikes in to visit customers in London, purchasing ‘Blue Motion’ vehicles and using green pest control methods such as hawks to deter seagulls.
“Winning this award can only be good for our business as many of our customers and potential customers are keen to use pest control companies who care about the environment. It has also been a huge morale boost for staff to have their efforts recognised in this way.”
