The great thing about our line of work is that no two jobs are the same. We can be moving old boxes from storage rooms one day to enormous clearances the next. An example of the latter was when we travelled to Cleckheaton to clear a huge mound of rubbish away.
A former travellers’ site, there was a lot of waste material left over from the time they had been living there. The pile included inert waste (such as soil and rubble) and was topped up with wood and general litter. The car park of a large sweet making factory was the location of the site, so it was important that the mess was cleaned up quickly and thoroughly.
Staff at the factory had to find alternative parking until we had completed the job, but luckily our three-man team had totally cleared everything in just two days. We had to combine a few different methods to get the desired results. Using a rubbish clearance truck and two 8 yard skips for the heavier rubble and soil we were able to get the larger items away in big quantities.
We think we did a pretty good job (if we say so ourselves), what do you think?
