We provide 24/7 breakdown service for over 600+ Portable Compactors, Stationary Compactors, Balers, Waste Shredders, Bin Pushers, Drum Crushers and other equipment across the U.K.
The Engineering Department is ably led by a hands on Management team who have an office-based Administration team taking emergency calls, organising work schedules, emergency cover and arranging services full time. Our Engineers are deployed throughout the country and there is an Engineer available for calls 24 hours per day 365 days per year.
The whole team genuinely believe that every customer of Environmental Waste Controls is a reference site, and care deeply that the compaction equipment is not only serviceable but more importantly that it maintains high compaction ratios throughout its long life expectancy.
All Environmental Waste Controls vehicles are fitted with the latest Satellite tracking systems and hands free communications, so that the transport and site management teams are aware of where their assets are, and in contact with them at all times. This enables us to divert the nearest vehicle to cover for breakdowns etc.
Environmental Waste Controls Fabrication Workshop
We also have our own fabrication workshop in Widnes that works in conjunction with our Engineers and Drivers, to carry out repairs and refurbishments to all types of skips.
Tools and Equipment
All Engineers carry a full complement of tools and spares to ensure that 99% of breakdowns are repaired immediately. Our Engineers are factory trained and have access to technical support from Environmental Waste Control’s head office and the factory itself. In the unlikely event that a machine cannot be repaired quickly and excessive downtime will lead to deterioration of service, Environmental Waste Controls will supply replacement machines from our extensive hire fleet.
We are here to help
Our team will also assist you if the machines are damaged by the waste contractor, unlikely but not impossible, to claim on the waste contractors insurance. If they are our waste contractors then we will liaise with them direct after first repairing the machine for you.
The majority of call outs are due to the lack of preventative servicing on the compactors. For instance oil leaks if not detected early enough can result in serious damage. Oil leaks also result in decreased ram pressures, which lead to increased collections and significantly increased running costs. Oil leaks can be caused by customers neglecting to clean behind the inspection hatches and amassing waste damaging the rams or hoses, or by the waste contractor being reckless during loading and or unloading. Fortunately these events are few and far between.
