Grab Hire in Hounslow | Using a Grab Lorry for Muck Away Work

You will already know about LTS Grab Hire through our modern rubbish clearance services. This is an operation where we send out a grab lorry to collect unwanted materials from a project, domestic or commercial, and take it away for recycling. We have covered areas like Hounslow with grab hire services since first starting out. Today, we are one of the most trusted names in the regional waste clearance and management sector.


Muck away is a supporting service where we remove spoil from building sites following excavation and earthmoving works. It is a rubbish clearance that primarily covers rubble and topsoil removal, much of which goes back into secondary use.


Muck away and grab hire go hand in hand. There are three different types of waste that can go onto a grab lorry:


  • Inert – This is waste that doesn’t impact other types of matter because it hasn’t undergone a biological, chemical or physical change. Inert waste collected from Hounslow can include brick, concrete, rubble and topsoil.
  • Hazardous – A hazardous waste clearance is one that sees trained personnel gathering contaminated materials which could pose a threat to human health, ecosystems and the environment. Oil and petrol are common contaminants.
  • Non-Hazardous – This is waste that doesn’t fall into the inert category, often because it has undergone a physical change or process, but which won’t have a negative impact on people or on the local and global environment.


Muck away is also a process that uses a grab lorry to remove waste generated from demolitions, or from other types of digging and excavation. This can include cuttings from farmyards and hedgerow restorations, and other green waste.


LTS Grab Hire can help with them all.


Muck Away Services and What to Expect


Our muck away services in Hounslow mainly focus on building and construction sites, but LTS Grab Hire can also help partners in heavy industry or in farming. We can undertake rubbish clearances for local authorities, estate managers and major corporations too, although a grab lorry is also an excellent alternative to skip hire for domestic customers. Use us to remove landscaping spoil, or waste from interior works.


Whoever and wherever you are, we can help.


LTS Grab Hire completes waste clearances in compliance with current laws and legislation, taking muck away from site to facilities where materials undergo screening, processing and bagging. These go back into the secondary aftersales market as recycled aggregates and topsoil – delivered on a grab lorry!


We see rubbish clearances as full-circle services where 90% of waste collected from Hounslow goes back into production.


Grab Hire, Muck Away and Landfill


Like any reputable grab hire company, we continuously review our processes to ensure we meet current government recycling targets. The materials collected from muck away projects end up with building, construction and civil engineering companies for use as secondary aggregates. These aggregates can include MOT Type 1, crushed concrete, ballast, gravel and sand. If possible, we recycle materials at our Lower Tadworth yard.


If you need a grab lorry to collect and drop aggregates off to a site in the local area, we’d love to take your call.


Anything collected from a waste clearance that we can’t recycle ourselves goes to a licensed waste transfer station with specialist facilities that can. This reduces the amount of waste taken to landfill sites in the Hounslow area.


LTS Grab Hire works tirelessly to reduce the strain on local landfill sites through recycling and repurposing. We believe that our company should lead the way in environmental care by protecting the planet for future generations. Waste clearances can play a pivotal role in sustainability by making recycling the core of all operations. Muck away is just one more area in which we’re doing more to reduce our carbon footprint.
