Sheridan Skips Leads in Sustainable Waste Management in Lancashire

Sheridan Skips has seen remarkable growth in the last year. Since their acquisition of Quicker Skips in March 2022, Sheridan have worked on developing their facilities and enhancing their commercial and domestic waste management offerings for the businesses and inhabitants in the Lancashire and greater Manchester regions.

Serving commercial and domestic customers, Sheridan Skips Lancashire are committed to doing their part in reducing waste, playing their part for the environment, and supporting the community.

Sheridan Skips has made substantial investments in recycling machinery and advanced technology to minimise waste. The company is committed to reducing Lancashire’s landfill waste, and to achieve this, it has implemented a set of rigorous procedures that are adhered to for every load that arrives at the recycling centre.

Supporting local businesses

Sheridan Skips Lancashire is committed to reducing waste and ensuring that as much waste as possible is recycled or repurposed, including everything from general waste to PVC. On average, the organisation processes 800 tonnes of general waste per month.

Sheridan works hard to develop systems and processes that ensure that everything they recycle is repurposed in a way that’s beneficial for the environment and society. Supporting local businesses through their waste management processing, they send the following waste to Lancashire-based businesses:

General waste: 40-50 tons go to local transfer station for shredding for energy
Wood: 20-30 tons is sent to Esken Renewables in Widnes for conversion into energy or animal bedding.
Hardcore: 150-200 tons go to local recycling yard for crushing and use in road and building bases
Scrap metal: 10-20 tons per month go to local scrap merchants for recycling
PVC: 3-5 tons per month go to Norpol Recycling for melting down and reuse
Soil/trommel fines: 10-15 tons per week go to Dikensons in Horwich or Whinney Hill landfill site for tip cover.

Sheridan carefully checks all incoming waste and documentation at the site office to ensure it can be recycled. Unsuitable loads are returned to the producer.

Supporting the community

At Sheridan Skips Lancashire, it’s not just about reducing waste. They are also committed to making sure that any profits they generate from the scrap metal they salvage is used to support local charities and football teams. The returns they make from scrap metal goes straight back into the community in the form of donations to local organisations. They’re proud to support the community in any way they can.

Sheridan Skips is also dedicated to enhancing public awareness about recycling practices. Frequently, individuals and businesses are unaware of the ultimate fate of their recycled materials.

As a result, Sheridan is fully committed to providing their clients with comprehensive information to enable them to make informed decisions about their waste and to help reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

By prioritising sustainability and community support, Sheridan Skips is setting an excellent example for other waste management companies to follow suit. They are playing a starring role in the region by contributing to a greener future for Lancashire and beyond.

“At Sheridan Skips, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and supporting the communities we serve. We have learned a lot in the last 25 years of supporting the people of the North West. We’ve provided reliable skip hire and have actively been engaged in the waste management of the region. We are looking forward to the next 25 years,” said Anthony Sheridan, Managing Director of the Sheridan Group and CEO of Sheridan Skips.
