Urbaser Ltd’s transfer stations are designed to be an efficient and safe tipping point for waste and recyclables. Here the material is checked for contamination and either compacted into containers or bulked up in larger heavy goods vehicles better suited to travelling longer distances and transported to another location for processing or treatment.

For our local authority waste collection customers, this means the smaller waste collection vehicles are more efficient with less distance travelled to tip thus allowing more time to collect waste and recycling from residents. This not only reduces the carbon footprint of our customers operations but in turn helps to reduce traffic movements in the local area.

We use a variety of bulk haulage vehicles from articulated vehicles to roll-on roll-off vehicles depending on the type of operation and the material to be transported. Our fleet of modern bulk haulage vehicles ensures we deliver a safe, high quality and carbon friendly service to our customers.
