The containers themselves are robust steel units with lockable lids, where even the smallest 6 cubic yard model has 4x the capacity of the largest wheelie bins on the market. If space is limited in your refuse area, but demand for recycling is high, then a front end loader could be exactly what you need.

We also provide 8 and 10 cubic metre FEL containers.

What’s The Difference Between Front End Loaders And Skips?

FELs have a huge advantage over skips in that they are emptied on site, and although they don’t have wheels, they can be moved into a new position with a forklift. The lockable and fully enclosed nature of front end loaders means that your waste will be secure from vermin, protected against any adverse weather conditions, and help keep their surroundings tidy.

Skips are more suitable for heavier loads, such as bricks, wood and other construction materials. Although those streams are not permissible in our FELs, we can provide a wide range of skips for our clients.

Similarly, hazardous waste is not allowed in front end loaders. We have specialist containers available which can store that should you need them.
