1500 mixed waste skips delivered and exchanged on Avonside projects.


Over 7500 tonnes of mixed waste removed from sites for Avonside.



Over 98% of waste from the project recycled at our facility in Sheffield.

Avonside is one of the largest roofing service providers in the UK. They have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in roofing and have worked with various sectors for over 25 years. 

In April 2021, Avonside contacted Fletchers Waste Management as they had won a large contract to replace and repair the roof on council properties across Sheffield and Nottingham, Derby and Leicestershire. As the council gave Avonside very strict time scales that they had to meet, they needed a skip hire company that would be proactive and reliable.

Given the number of properties being managed and the challenge of communicating with tenants, Avonside needed Fletchers to be accommodating and willing to be flexible in terms of changing delivery addresses at only a few hours notice.



Our solution

To learn more about the project and Avonside’s needs, a dedicated account manager was assigned and arranged a site visit to complete a waste/needs audit. As chutes are placed from the roof directly into the skips, it meant they were quickly filled, emphasising the need for a quick turnaround and flexibility to ensure no delays to the project. 

Our Account Manager was proactive and worked closely with Avonside’s Site Manager to get up to date work schedules. Doing this helped us pre-plan as much as possible and ensure skips were available for delivery and exchange. As a result, throughout the initial eight months of the contract, Fletchers has collected more than 7500 tonnes of mixed waste, including tiles, concrete and timber. Although the skips were on a fast turnaround, it did not mean our waste recycling efforts were overlooked.

A critical factor in Avonside choosing Fletchers to provide their skips was our dedication to recycling over 98% of the waste we collect. Our large-scale, professional facility allowed us to carefully segregate the waste from the 180 skips. Waste such as tiles are broken down with specialist machinery and turned into hardcore which can be reused on other construction projects across the UK.


I am very pleased with how Fletchers Waste Management performs on all our sites, our projects are extremely difficult to manage, and we require a very pro-active/flexible and well-priced company to meet our needs. The team come to sites at any given time and ensure the smooth running and quick turnaround of skips when required. Great work Fletchers, many thanks.
