Enviro-Clean operate a fleet of 24, 20 ton tippers and 4 articulated tippers capable of carrying up to 30 tons of material. Our proximity to Scotland’s major routes gives us the edge in all muck and debris shifting projects. Also, as we are in control of our own waste disposal site, our prices are always competitive.
What do you do with the muck and debris?
The majority of the debris we transport is disposed of under licence at our own inert disposal site in South Lanarkshire. To minimise our carbon footprint, other disposal sites are used depending on the location of the work.
I see some scrappy tippers on the road. What are yours like?
Tipper trucks need to work hard during their short life with us and an awful lot is asked of them.
Given the very demanding nature of the work carried out by our tippers, we are constantly updating the tipper fleet with new vehicles every 6 months to ensure the fleet is reliable as possible. All of the new trucks are specified with the latest automatic gearboxes, to remove the damage inflicted on them by multiple manual shifting on difficult terrain.
However, breakdowns do happen; that fact cannot be denied but with our in-house 24/7 garage and workshop, we get the trucks repaired and back out working as soon as practicably possible.
All new tippers delivered since September 2015 are now FORS (Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme - to download our certificate click here) compliant to meet the growing demand for safer HGV’s on the British Roads, and we are the first Scottish company to reach this accolade.
When do you use tippers over skips?
Our tippers are used for a multitude of projects from road building and civil engineering projects, house construction, sewage and water sludge cake transport, transport of stone from quarries, etc. Given the size of our fleet we have the capacity to move up to 10,000 tons of muck in a five day period.
Skips are used for small earth moving jobs such as garden landscaping or where you have larger volumes being removed in small amounts, 5 or 6 tons at a time.
