Rear End Loaders (RELs)

Rear End Loaders (RELs) are an alternative to Front End Loaders (FELs). They are also emptied on site but look more like a conventional skip. The benefit of RELs is that they come in larger sizes and sometimes the lids can be more robust than with FELs (steel instead of polymer).

They are ideal for offices, shops, restaurants or any company that produces a lot of packaging or light ‘black bag’ waste, as they are quite neat, easy to load and the services are scheduled, either weekly or fortnightly, so you don’t have to worry about booking collections.

Suitable waste includes:

  • general waste (compactable)
  • dry mixed recycling
  • segregated recycling (e.g. cardboard or plastic packaging)

More robust waste such as bricks, rubble and timber are not suited for Rear end loader (REL) containers, please see our skip hire service for this type of waste.

REL containers come in various sizes to suit (approximate Dimensions)

Rear end loader containers can also double-up as lockable and secure skips if required.

Costs for this service are much cheaper than skips if used correctly. Just be aware that should you load with heavy wastes, there may be excess weight charges, so best to check with us first to see if this would apply in your area.

If you think this service might be right for you then please call us to discuss. The alternative to FEL’s, in addition to wheelie-bins, are Rear End Loaders (REL’s).
