Many domestic and commercial construction projects require muck away services. But what exactly is it and how does it work? Our experienced team have created this useful guide, so you know everything you need to know about waste removal. This includes information on grab lorry hire, how we remove waste and where it goes. Furthermore, we advise on the best ways for customers in Guildford to maximise project efficiency with additional services such as crushed concrete and top soil delivery.
No matter your needs or the specifics of your job, Bidder Grab Hire provides ideal solutions.
What is Muck Away?
Muck away, sometimes called cart away, is the process of removing spoil from construction sites. This is a part of site clearance and takes place during the early stages of construction. The process involves removing rubble, rubbish and any other waste that demolition or groundworks create or uncover.
This type of waste removal often uses large grab lorry vehicles, making it popular for site clearance projects in Guildford that produce a large amount of waste.
In addition, because we use versatile grab vehicles, we can provide top soil delivery and delivery of other aggregates, such as crushed concrete, at the same time as waste removal. By using the same lorry to deliver materials and collect waste, we maximise efficiency and reduce project costs.
Waste from construction sites fits into one of three categories. These are:
Inert Waste – Waste that has not gone through any chemical, physical or biological changes and will not decompose, or will do so very slowly, such as sand and concrete.
Hazardous Waste – This includes any materials considered to be harmful to humans or the environment.
Non-Hazardous Waste – A variety of products and materials that are not harmful to humans or the environment.
It is important to note that Bidder Grab Hire only undertakes the removal of inert and non-hazardous waste in Guildford and the surrounding areas. This covers a vast range of materials from soil and green waste to rubble and hardcore.
Handling & Disposal
Bidder Grab Hire is fully licenced by the Environment Agency to carry out muck away and other waste removal services. Our drivers also have HGV licences for the safe and legal operation of grab vehicles.
When undertaking muck away in Guildford, we arrive at your site with a large-capacity grab lorry. We then use the hydraulic arm to efficiently load waste into the bed of the truck before taking it away.
When we remove waste from your site, we recycle as much as possible. This includes using waste materials to produce our own crushed concrete and top soil onsite at our Guildford yard. These materials are then readily available for recycled concrete and top soil delivery in the local area.
Any waste that we cannot recycle, either ourselves or at a licenced facility, we send to licenced landfill sites.
