The 'Atlas' Story
‘Atlas Skip & Grab Hire Ltd’ are a licenced waste management company situated in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
Atlas started trading back in 2001 offering a service alike ‘HIPPOBAG’, however, due to demand we purchased our first grab lorry in 2003 and haven’t looked back since.
Now we have a fleet of grab lorries and a range of skips ready to serve the local area from our 1-acre site where we recycle approximately 87% of the waste we receive
As well as offering a full waste management service (covering both domestic and commercial clients), we also supply aggregates such as MOT Type 1, crushed concrete, ballast, gravel and sand.
In 2017 we further increased our services to include resurfacing, particularly tarmac and resin bound aggregate surfacing for driveways, patios, paths and car parks.
Our 1-acre Site
Our site is approximately 1 acre in size and is run by a team of 6 fully qualified WAMITAB (Waste Management Industry and Advisory Board) operatives. We have a selection of 6- and 8-wheel grab lorries and over 50 skips that are used to both collect waste and deliver recycled material and aggregates.
Daily operations on our licenced site are assisted by 2 excavators. Our 3-tonne digger helps the staff in the yard to safely separate the lighter waste into clearly defined piles, whilst the job of our 13-tonne excavator is mainly to seperate hardcore from the soil and loading the recycled waste back on to the lorries (or 40 yard roll on / off bins) for reuse and further processing.
