What Waste Can a Grab Lorry Take?

Grab Lorries are versatile vehicles that can accommodate a wide range of waste. This makes them an excellent choice for businesses and homeowners who need to get rid of large or bulky items quickly and easily. Some of the types of waste that a grab lorry can take include:

  • Construction debris: including wood, metal, and plastic
  • Furniture: including sofas, chairs, tables, and beds
  • Home appliances: including refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, and washers and dryers
  • Yard waste: including branches, leaves, grass clippings, and tree stumps
  • Tires: both whole and shredded

Recyclable Muck & Muck Away

Grab lorries can take mixed soil, concrete and stone. However you must separate carefully the materials that are considered muck away from other types because not all grab lorry operators will accept them as a load onto their truck – call in advance for more information.
Turf or tarmac might also have problems being accepted by some grab lorries, so make sure before arranging collection.

What Materials Can’t be Removed?

Asbestos is a material that requires careful disposal by professionals. It is not safe to remove asbestos by yourself and can cause serious health problems if it is mishandled. Other materials that cannot be removed by a grab lorry include:

  • Hazardous waste: including paint, oil, and batteries
  • Chemicals: including pesticides and pool chemicals
  • Asphalt: including hot asphalt and roofing tar

If you have any of these materials on your property, it is important to contact a professional waste disposal company to take care of it. They will be able to dispose of the material safely and in accordance with environmental regulations.

It’s important to note that not all grab lorries are able to accommodate every type of waste. So before you call for a pick-up, be sure to ask the driver if they can take your specific items. And if they can’t, they may be able to recommend another service that can help.

When it comes to waste disposal, a grab lorry is a great option for businesses and homeowners who need to get rid of large or bulky items quickly and easily. So if you’re looking for a way to dispose of your waste, be sure to give Active Grab Hire a call.
