How to get rid of your waste legally

If you are looking to tidy up the house or garden, getting rid of the unwanted items can always be a concern.

It is the owners responsibility to ensure their waste is recycled legally, not all clearance services have the correct waste carrier licence, so if they tip your waste you can be found responsible and fined.

Wiltshire, like many Councils across the UK has seen an increase in tipping through 2020, so are targeting fly tippers, please click on this link to understand what they are planning https://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/article/3099/We-re-Targeting-Fly-tippers

We at Crapper and Sons have been in the waste industry for over 30 years and are renowned for our reliability and professionalism. We offer a totally flexible service; from sending a team in to clear everything in your garden or house, to providing you with our convenient dumpy bags for you to fill and then us to pick up and recycle as much as we can.

By using Crapper and Sons you have the confidence to know your waste will not be tipped and we will try our hardest in recycling your waste. Approximately 66% of all waste we receive is recycled.

Wiltshire Business Awards 2018 – Multiple Award Winners!

During January 2018 we were approached by the Swindon Advertiser to enter the 2018 Business Awards. The Business awards have been running for over 20 years throughout which a comprehensive process has been developed to assess local businesses.

The first step included the application of categories you wished to enter. This was followed by gathering information about the company how it evolved, what it does and where it all happens. We were asked about the business finances, development Strategy, our group structure, number of employee’s, recruitment, involvment in the community, our greatest successes and plans for the future.

We then received an invitation to meet the judges and talk to the sponsors of this event. At this point they had already read our application so had some insight to what all the businesses were about although this was an opportunity for them to find out more about us and the business we represent. It was also a chance for us to meet and network with other successful businesses. This was a very friendly and informal event and a pleasure to attend.

BSI PAS 100 Certification

In 2010 we achieved the BSI PAS 100 quality mark on our green waste recycling; which relates to the processing of those materials from reception, right through to the finished product.

Several changes were made resulting in Crapper and Sons beginning 2010 with considerable improvements in the efficiency of the composting cycle from the outset.

We are proud to report that we have successfully achieved our PAS 100 certification renewal in both 2011 and 2012; we will be re-audited in July 2013 to enable us to renew our certificate.

If you would like any further information feel free to contact us, we will be very proud to discuss our compost with you.

Giving Back to the Community

We chose to divert money that is generated by Landfilll tax to local charties. The charites have to be registered with entrust to allow them to qualilfy for funding.

We donate a small percentage of the money ourselves, this money would otherwise go to the goverment. The charities we have given to are:

  • The Wilts & Berks Canal Trust – currently received over £450,000
  • Brinkworth Chuch Roof Fund
  • Somerford Football Club

Landfill Extension

Digger on Dirt

Although we recycle the majority of the waste that enters our site, there is still always a proportion that cannot be recycled. For this waste we need a Landfill to dispose of the leftover materials adequately. We have been Landfilling on our site for the past twenty five years. In September 2010 we received our most recent extension to the existing Landfill; this allowed us to continue our business whilst we strive to find even greener solutions. We have planning permission for our own renewable energy plant on site and once this is up and running, the amount of waste heading to landfill will be even more drastically reduced.
