J Dickinson & Sons’ artic lorry hire service
Here at J Dickinson & Sons we offer Articulated Wagons for hire, each equipped with walk-in floors allowing us to provide a truly holistic haulage service throughout the country.
What is an Artic lorry?
An artic lorry, also known as an articulated lorry, is a vehicle that features a pivot joint. This means the lorry can accommodate more storage space and length, while still being able to navigate tighter corners that would otherwise be impossible without the pivot joint in place.
Other articulated vehicles include buses, trams, tractors and even watercraft that have a pivot joint to help transportation and navigation.
What do we do with the waste collected?
We have a wholly-owned, state-of-the-art 17-acre recycling centre in Blackrod, which we use to process all waste that comes through. In doing so we aim to recycle 100% of all the materials that come through our recycling centre, diverting as much as possible away from landfill.
What waste can your artic lorry collect
Our articulated wagons can offer waste hauling services to those seeking to transport the following materials:
- Clean hardcore
- Green waste
- General waste
- And more…
Each of our arctic wagons can haul up to 26 tonnes of waste at one time, resulting in fewer trips being required to remove all the waste you have on-site.
What waste can’t your artic lorries collect?
Unfortunately, we cannot collect, haul or recycle any medical waste or hazardous waste among others due to not holding the relevant licences, as well as not possessing the necessary equipment to recycle and process the material in a safe and environmentally conscious manner.
If you have waste of this nature that needs collecting and transporting we recommend that you search the Government website to find a licensed service provider.
To help we have highlighted some specific waste examples that we cannot accept, they are:
- Medical waste
- Electrical appliances & equipment
- Gas canisters and gas bottles
- Hazardous & toxic materials
- Petrol, diesel
- Paint cans
What areas do we cover?
Our service stretches across the whole of the UK, including the Shetland islands, Jersey, Isle of Man and isle of Wight.
