Our objective is to maximise recycling and minimise landfill for Portland.
Towens Waste Management provides skip hire in Portland that is efficient and responsive to the needs of domestic and commercial customers. With our fleet of skip and hook lift lorries supplying skips and containers within 24 hours of ordering to Portland.
Towens offer a professional standard of service to Portland, servicing the construction and building industry, commercial customers, general public and national waste management companies.
The waste you put in your skip gets transported to our Transfer Station where it is tipped out ready for processing. Hardcore or soil only skips are deposited directly into piles for turning into recycled aggregates, topsoil and subsoils for use in construction projects. Plasterboard gets stored for recycling by plasterboard manufacturers.
All other waste is sorted by machine munched, trammeled, handpicked, blown, and picked by a magnet to separate the various waste streams. The non-recyclable material is loaded into large ejector trailers and transported to landfill sites within our area. All other wastes are segregated stockpiled and transported to suitable recycling facilities to turn into other products or fuel stock for waste to energy plants
