Process We Follow

We thoroughly clear the area of all debris and accumulated waste, ensuring there are no obstacles or hazards that could delay our clients’ projects. We use the grab lorry’s hydraulic arm to collect and remove large volumes of waste quickly and safely, with minimal impact and disruption to your property in Worthing.

Once collected, the appropriate disposal of any muck away or site clearance waste is the next important step. In the past, building site clearance companies would take almost everything to a landfill site. However, today most licensed waste carriers like HGS Southern Ltd aim to recycle 100% of material collected. We have partnerships with local recycling centres and services and we only take waste collected from site clearance projects to landfill as a last resort.

Why is Grab Hire Better Than Skip Hire For Site Clearance?

Grab Hire

You may have already considered hiring a skip, but for many site clearance jobs hiring a grab truck can be much more efficient and cost effective.

Some of the advantages a grab truck has over a skip are: 

  • Safe loading and unloading of heavy materials 
  • No need to load a skip using a wheelbarrow 
  • No need to arrange permits for skips on public highways 
  • Quick turnaround keeps access clear for longer 
  • Significantly larger carrying capacity than using a skip

frequently asked questions


Site clearance refers to the removal of debris from a construction or demolition site. This is often done before other work begins in order to prepare the site for constructions. It may also be carried out after the completion of a job to remove the detritus caused by the construction or demolition process.

As part of our professional site clearance services, we can remove hazardous, non-hazardous and inert waste. This includes topsoil, hardcore, asbestos, ceramics and organic waste like tree cuttings. We also liaise with the relevant recycling services for each class of material we collect and aim to recycle as much material as we can.

Our site clearance services operate throughout Sussex. We can conduct clearances in areas including Shoreham, Lancing, Brighton, Fulking, Haywards Heath, Hove and more.  

If you are in or near Sussex but don’t see your location listed, feel free to get in touch and a member of our team will discuss your project with you and let you know if we can help.
