What if I am not finished by pick-up day?
Please let’s know should you need the dumpster for a protracted time. We hold many skips so we can be fairly elastic if this situation appears.

Do you recycle my waste?
We operate two state of the art materials recycling facilities. Waste is tipped via dumpster vehicles / council vehicles / walking floorings and dustbin lorries at the materials recycling facilities. The waste is then processed through the various processing stages to take out the different materials within the waste.
The segregated materials are then recycled. Stuff that can not be recycled are used to generate electricity on site which is exported to the national grid; we also produce refuse derived fuel which is employed as a coal replacement fuel in power stations and industry power processes.
100% recycling / recovery – zero landfill.
