Owen Pugh operate a small fleet of skips and skip wagons from mini-midi-maxi size skips to larger roll on /off 20 – 40 cu yd skips. This small fleet services the needs of Owen Pugh Group. The bulk of the work comes from the demolition department where as far as practicable the demolition waste is sorted into different materials. All hardcore and rubble is taken to our recycling facilities at Marsden Quarry and North Shields, timber is sent to an independent specialist timber recycling operation, ferrous and non-ferrous metals are reprocessed by the metal reclamation industry and paper and plastics are sent to an appropriate licensed landfill site.
The other parts of Owen Pugh Group also use the skip service for general site waste which is processed in the same manner.
Owen Pugh often use the skip service for clean excavated material as their operations often take place out of hours or in restricted situations. Any inert materials are disposed of at our Marsden tipping facility.
