Lancashire-based waste management firm Able Recycling has invested in three new Hiab MULTILIFTs as part of its ongoing modernisation programme.   

The Futura FTR skiploader chassis are on 18t Volvo trucks and feature Skiptop2 sheeters and Flex Radio control.

Able Recycling is one of Lancashire’s best-known skip hire and recycling companies, offering a variety of different skip sizes and types to meet all waste requirements, from simple DIY jobs and general household tidy-ups right through to multi-million-pound refurbishment contracts and new build residential developments.

The skiploaders join a 9-strong fleet which have operated across Lancashire for more than 30 years helping businesses to deliver their sustainability strategies. It is part of the APK group of businesses which operate predominately across the North of England and Wales offering a range of integrated services including Civil Engineering, Groundworks, Demolition, Remediation, Plant Hire, Transport and Recycling and Aggregates.

Oliver Kirkbride, Owner and Director at APK said: “Following the purchase of the Futura Skip Loaders in our GTR business in 2020 we have been impressed with the build quality and functionality of the HIAB product and as part of our ongoing fleet expansion and fleet renewal program chose HIAB as our partner for these additional Vehicles at Able.”

Dek Butler, MULTILIFT specialist for Hiab UK said: “Recycling and waste management is a sector which demands high-performance equipment. Our MULTILIFT skiploaders are built to perform so waste management is a key sector for us. Hiab have supplied similar solutions to other APK group companies, and they have been delighted with the quality and performance, leading them to strive for similar consistency across the group.

“I’m confident Able Recycling’s three new skiploaders will help it manage its growing customer base in the region. The inclusion of Skiptop2 sheeters and Flex Radio control will improve safety and productivity for the business. We’re proud to be a valued supplier for a globally-recognised company.”
