Following a call from Biffa in early May 2017, Clearland was informed of fly-tipping at an ex-Pipe Centre site in central Manchester. The site had faced a significant quantity of waste being dumped over a short period of time, and pressure was being applied by the landlord for the waste to be removed. Biffa subcontracted the work to Clearland.
Clearland moved a total of 79 tonnes of mixed general waste, both loose and baled. To move the loose material, 14 grab wagon journeys were required, while Moffett-equipped vehicles were deployed to handle the removal of bales and intermediate bulk containers.
Time was of the essence due to landlord pressure and the need for Wolseley Group to surrender the lease of the site in a clean condition. Clearland therefore had to act in a speedy manner and ensure the safe and efficient removal and disposal of the waste.
Full duty of care was carried out from the start to the end of the project and, through this efficiency and due diligence, Clearland was able to clear the site within 72 hours.
