Recycling Process for Grab Hire and Muck Away in Whitstable


Domestic and commercial clients in Whitstable can rely on our eco-friendly grab hire services to carry out ethical waste removals. When we collect inert, non-hazardous materials from construction and renovation sites, we follow a rigid process to convert rubbish into secondary aggregates, which is repurposed and sold by our aggregate suppliers.


At Shaw Haulage Ltd, our aim is to recycle as much biodegradable, muck away waste as possible and adhere to the Environment Agency’s regulations. Commercial companies can be confident that we manage all projects in an environmentally-friendly fashion, including responsible hazardous waste removals.


The Removal and Recycling Process


  1. Waste Removal – We arrive at your Whitstable property with fully-operated grab hire vehicles and remove muck away waste. Our team uses lorries and tippers that hold up to an 80-tonne capacity for removals at residential properties and construction sites. We collect rubbish in a safe and efficient manner, which causes little disruption to your workforce.
  2. Recycling Waste into Aggregates – Muck away technicians transfer waste to a local recycling centre in Sittingbourne. Here, specialists screen and process broken pieces of stone, concrete, brick, glass and sand into reusable materials. They separate spoil with a mesh technique which removes roots, pebbles and detritus. We ethically dispose of any grab hire or muck away waste at a registered landfill that our aggregate suppliers can’t reuse or sell.
  3. Redistribution by Aggregate Suppliers – Our aggregate suppliers provide recycled aggregates at extremely affordable prices. Builders combine aggregates with cement to reinforce concrete mixtures to carry out construction, landscaping and renovation work. Aggregate suppliers deliver recycled resources in our versatile grab hire and muck away vehicles directly to your property in Whitstable.
