The 'Atlas' Story
‘Atlas Services’ is a family run business that offers waste disposal, ground works and surfacing to both commercial and domestic sectors all run from our depot near Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
We started in 2003 offering waste removal with our first grab lorry we then added more lorries in 2005, 2007, 2012 and 2018 to manage with the increasing need of our waste disposal services in the Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire areas.
In 2006 we added a range of skips to give both our trade and domestic customers a “One Stop Shop” service for the disposal of their waste.
In 2009 we moved into our new 1-acre waste transfer site where we recycle approximately 87% of the waste we collect.
As well as offering a full waste management service (covering both domestic and commercial clients), we also supply aggregates such as MOT Type 1, crushed concrete, ballast, gravel and sand.
In 2017 we further increased our services to include resurfacing, particularly tarmac and resin bound aggregate surfacing for driveways, patios, paths and car parks.
Our 1-acre Site
Our site is approximately 1 acre in size and is run by a team of 6 fully qualified WAMITAB (Waste Management Industry and Advisory Board) operatives. We have a selection of 6- and 8-wheel grab lorries and over 50 skips that are used to both collect waste and deliver recycled material and aggregates.
Daily operations on our licenced site are assisted by 2 excavators. Our 3-tonne digger helps the staff in the yard to safely separate the lighter waste into clearly defined piles, whilst the job of our 13-tonne excavator is mainly to seperate hardcore from the soil and loading the recycled waste back on to the lorries (or 40 yard roll on / off bins) for reuse and further processing.
