At the heart of our operation is our Environment Agency Licensed Materials Recovery Facility.
Our purpose built 15000sq ft facility is completely housed inside, so unlike many other skip hire companies, all the waste that we collect is stored indoors. This means there is less impact on the local environment caused by waste escaping from the site, or unpleasant odours arising. It also helps to guard against incidences of fire.
Our facility is licensed to accept all forms of non-hazardous waste and processes over 30,000 tonnes of material per annum. All the waste we collect in our mixed waste skips is brought to the Materials Recovery Facility. Here, our team of trained recycling technicians then work hard to identify and segregate any materials that can be recycled.
We are proud of the fact that no materials from our site are consigned directly to active waste landfill sites, giving our site a ‘Zero to Landfill’ certification.
We are also part of the waste to energy scheme, meaning any waste we cannot recycle will be transported to one of our approved contractors and ultimately turned into energy blocks to be used in power plants.
We have invested over £250,000 in our fleet of modern loading shovels which enable us to move huge volumes of waste and allow us to bulk up the materials ready for transport to further processing.
The recycling centre is located in Lancaster enabling us to provide a quick and efficient service to the city of Lancaster, Morecambe, South Cumbria, North Yorkshire and the Lancashire County.
