The Cheshire-based firm will offer a cost-effective solution, providing factory-based maintenance and repairs for the council’s four wheeled waste and recycling containers. UKCM will refurbish existing assets, supply new and restored containers, and repair and provide compliant parts as necessary while ensuring that the quality, integrity and safety of the containers is never compromised throughout the process.

Emma Elston MBE, CEO of UKCM commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured the competitive tender with Oldham Council and for our dedicated team to be working with the organisation to provide our technical support and services.

“We work with a significant number of local authorities across the UK already, helping them to save a substantial amount of money on the maintenance of their waste and recycling containers, and we look forward to extending our expertise to Oldham Council.”

Established in 1998, UKCM, the UK’s largest family owned container repair and refurbishment company is dedicated to the refurbishment of all types of waste and recycling containers. UKCM works across the country offering waste companies and local authorities’ mobile repairs, as well as factory-based services at its head office located in Winsford, Cheshire.

The process brings old, and often unwanted, waste containers back to life instead of them going to scrap. The business model – refurbishment over replacement – is simple and for a third of the price of replacing a container, UKCM can restore the unit to full working order.
