Oz Bin Cleaning has been going strong since 2001 and will celebrate its fifth birthday in October 2006.
Since Oz Bin Cleaning's early days around Sydney's North Shore, the network has grown substantially through the power of franchising and now covers all areas of Sydney from the Central Coast to Wollongong, and has also expanded into Victoria, Queensland and most recently New Zealand.
With another reason to celebrate, Oz Bin Cleaning's UK parent, VIP Bin Cleaning, has been crowned winner of the HSBC Award for Enterprise at the British Franchise Association's annual Franchisor of the Year Awards. Managing Director Mark Harvey was presented with the Category Winner's trophy at a glittering gala luncheon at London's famous Savoy Hotel.
In news back home, Oz Bin Cleaning Queensland has been nominated as a finalist in the category of Best Emerging Business in the Queensland Chamber of Commerce Redlands Annual Awards. The winner will be announced at the Business Achievement Awards Night in November.
Also, Oz Bin Cleaning has been approved by the Smart Approved WaterMark organisation, a Water Services Association of Australia initiative.
The Smart Approved WaterMark is Australia's water saving labelling program for products, services and organisations which are helping to reduce outdoor water use. By supporting organisations that display the Smart Approved WaterMark logo, it is possible to contribute to the reduction in per capita water consumption.
