On first joining the company you become a Freeman (and can later become a Liveryman) of the Environmental Cleaners. Freedom of the Company is open for persons who are or have been – in the opinion of the Court – engaged in, or closely connected with, the trade of Environmental Cleaning or associated trade or trades or occupations.
Prospective new members of the Environmental Cleaners have to be introduced by existing Members, as they do for many clubs and societies. Members are encouraged to put forward people from within the industry whom they consider suitable.
To be made a Freeman of the Company is a significant honour and one which is bestowed only after careful consideration by the Court of Assistants.
The Clerk will be pleased to assist any member by providing relevant information required to help the member or the applicant, including the Application Form and Procedures.
