If you require materials like sand, topsoil, and aggregates you can arrange delivery at the same time as your waste collection. As part of our philosophy to recycle and reuse all waste materials to their maximum potential, we manufacture our own aggregates which can be delivered loose or placed on-site in one-tonne bags.

Muck Away Lorry Hire in Dover

We collect all types of muck away waste and can do so in a one-off visit, or with regular trips throughout your contract. There are three main categories of waste, while we collect all three of these we’ll need to know what category your waste falls into to properly dispose of it.

  • Inert waste, like concrete, is waste that does not decompose or takes an extremely long time to break down naturally
  • General waste that would go into the household bin in a domestic setting
  • Hazardous waste that is toxic to the environment and needs to be handled with care

Our muck away lorries all come with a 15 m3 capacity meaning we can support you with large commercial projects, excavations and construction work. We aim to work efficiently with you to allow you and your team to get on with work undisturbed, leaving you with extra clear space when we go.

Dover Grab Lorry Sizes

Our fleet of grab lorries and tippers are all 8x4, four-axled, eight-wheeled vehicles. Each vehicle holds up to 15 cubic metres of materials and a weight of up to 20 tonnes. Our grab lorries and tippers can carry more than double one of our largest skips in one trip making them an ideal choice for larger projects and contracts.

Should you Hire a Tipper or a Grab Lorry?

If you need to remove waste material at your worksite we’ll ask whether you want to hire a tipper or a grab lorry. The difference is quite simple and depends on the situation at your worksite. If you have access to equipment or machinery installed which can load our vehicle you might want to hire a tipper, this is simply the vehicle with a container which we’ll allow you to load yourself before we remove the waste from your site.

If you don’t have access to equipment to help with loading we’d suggest hiring a grab lorry. This type of lorry comes with a loading bucket which we use to transfer material from your site into our vehicle. If you are on a tight schedule you might want to choose this option anyway as it allows you and your team to continue working undisturbed while we load and remove the waste.

Skip sizes guide

Our skip sizes range from four to 12 cubic yards which provide a very cost-effective way to dispose of bulky waste including furniture and garden waste. For a skip that will be placed on the road, there will be an extra charge of £50.00 (per week) added for a permit from the council. If a permit is required, it takes 3 days to obtain permission from the local authority so factor this in when you’re planning the hire of your skip.

To help you decide which size skip would be best for you, please refer to our waste skip sizes guide pages. We’ve included skip sizes in yards and skip capacity m3 to give you a good idea of what will fit in each skip.

. If you want to know exactly how much it will cost, just reach out to us at TW Services. After gathering information about the type and volume of waste, along with details about the site's location and layout, we’ll give you an accurate quote.

What’s the difference between a grab lorry and a skip?

A grab lorry and a skip are both used for waste removal, but they differ in how waste is collected and the flexibility they offer on-site. Grab lorries use a mechanical arm to pick up and load waste directly from various locations, making them versatile for different materials and quicker in collection.

Skips in Dover, on the other hand, stay in one designated spot and are loaded by individuals or machinery, making them suitable for specific waste types but less flexible.

Grab lorries require less space for manoeuvring and can reach over obstacles, while skips need a flat space for placement. The choice between them depends on your project's specific needs, the type of waste, and the convenience you’re after.

Whether you’re looking for a skip or a grab lorry, give us a call on 01304 626364 and we can get you started.
