Our commitment to continuous improvement in the waste management sector…

Materials Recovery Facilities

We have four Materials Recovery Facilities dotted along the south coast in Southampton, Portsmouth and Yapton. This is where all the waste is processed, whether it comes via our fleet of vehicles or deposited by third parties. We take it all in for sorting, segregating and onward recycling wherever possible.

We endeavour to recycle or reuse up to 100% of the waste that comes through our doors in a bid to do all we can to divert waste from landfill. As well as the standard waste streams of paper, cardboard, wood, metal, plastic and glass, we also recycle materials such as soil, rubble and concrete. Clean inert soil is repurposed for other projects, while rubble and concrete is accepted at our Butser Quarry site and made into recycled aggregates for a range of uses.

Dibles is widely utilised by third party commercial businesses, many of whom are in the construction industry, as well as our own lorries, who transport all the waste from our depots and contract work back here for sorting and recycling. 

Much of this contract work is commercial waste management contracts, which could be regular waste removal carried out for local companies or for annual events such as the Great South Run and Victorious Festival.

Energy from Waste

We are planning a more active role in Energy from Waste (EfW) practices in the coming years. We have plans in the pipeline to to start developing a turnkey waste processing facility that will combine cutting-edge technology with our in-house processes to recover resources from a range of waste types and sources.

The potential incorporation of final treatment technologies such as pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion and biomass will add value for our customers, create further jobs, reduce the need for transporting segregated waste by road and, most importantly, reduce the reliance on conventional energy recovery through waste incineration.

Areas of particular interest to us include plastic to fuel processes and material recovery from tyres. Plastics are hydrocarbons that are made from petroleum and they can be converted back to liquid fuel. A process called pyrolysis is typically used to do this, which requires heating the plastics at a high temperature. At the high heat and pressure, water breaks  the plastic down and converts it into oil.

The UK produces around 55 million waste tyres a year and it’s difficult to enforce the legal disposal of them all ( By using pyrolysis, the carbon black and steel in tyres could be recovered and the rubber converted to a partially renewable oil.

Recycle, recycle, recycle

We are dedicated to diverting waste from landfill as much as we possibly can  and our extensive recycling efforts and diverse range of routes enable us to do an excellent job of this. 

We are keen to promote the practice of recycling and are regularly partnering with companies that are looking to improve their recycling rates or who have means of providing innovative new ways to recycle. Our recycling efforts have led to an excess of 250,000 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill each year through recycling routes.

Plastic recycling

Limited plastic recycling continues to be one of the biggest concerns in the recycling industry. We are continually investigating new possibilities in this area and have plans for a plastic recycling trial in the pipeline. Over the past couple of years, we have formed partnerships with like-minded organisations to help facilitate plastic recycling.

The Final Straw Foundation is a charity whose work revolves around highlighting the impact of plastic pollution on our environment, local seas and wider oceans. We recently formed an official partnership with them and have provided regular support to them over the past few years. We’ve provided free waste removal for several beach cleans as well as emptying their huge plastic bottle bank – a metal fish called Nellie – when no one else would help.

Jude’s Ice Cream is one of our clients and when we established a new recycling process for certain types of plastics, we quickly realised that Jude’s unwanted plastic ice cream tubs and offcuts would be ideal for it. The plastic ice cream tubs are made into a new product – pellets – which can be moulded into new plastic products. The latest equipment for recycling plastic materials is used in this recycling process to ensure that the highest quality products are maintained.

Mattress recycling

We identified a recycling route for mattresses in 2020 and have been utilising it regularly ever since as it provides an excellent outlet for these traditionally difficult-to-recycle items. We now have a contract with a local organisation to dispose of large numbers of used mattresses each year and this new route will make the process easier as well as more eco-friendly.

We transport all unwanted mattresses in batches to the facility in Kent where they are taken apart to separate the different materials. Most modern mattresses are made of different types of foam with a textile covering and these are categorised so that each can be recycled separately.

Specialist IT systems

We’ve recently implemented a new IT software system – Fissara Move – to improve the way we work in all areas. We previously had a number of separate systems which made operations admin-heavy. By bringing all our systems together, we have increased efficiency and reduced the time each task takes to complete.

Fissara Move was designed specifically for TJ, with our core business needs in mind.  It is ideally suited to transport and logistics companies as it can be utilised on the move, via Samsung Galaxy tablet devices, as well as by office-based employees on desktop computers, improving communication between the two parties. 

Fissara Move joined all our different service areas together to provide a smooth, seamless operation. It encompasses every step of the service journey, from quote creation and booking, through to delivery and invoicing, with everything accessible at the touch of a button as all the data is stored in one place.

This new system, along with the new VOIP phone system we’ve installed, has made remote working possible too, which in recent times has been hugely beneficial. Staff can now log into their accounts and access our software and phone systems  from anywhere, which has increased flexibility too.

Vehicle technology

Our entire fleet is on a rolling renewal scheme, which means our vehicles are always modern and well-maintained. All of our lorries have a range of safety features installed to make them easier to manoeuver and safer for both the drivers and those around them, particularly vulnerable road users such as cyclists.

Our vehicle safety features include automatic tailgates, a 6-point CCTV system, front and rear strobes, audible left turn warning, weigh loaders and side scanner sensors. This technology, coupled with a high level of spacial awareness from our drivers, ensures that we keep road safety incidents to a minimum.

Nationwide skip hire service

We’ve now extended our skip hire service nationwide, so wherever you are in the country, you can rely on us to take care of your skip hire needs for you. We’ve built up a network of suppliers across England enabling us to provide reactive, reliable skip hire services to our customers wherever their projects are taking place.

We operate our in-house skip hire service throughout Hampshire, as well as parts of West Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Dorset. Outside of these counties, we utilise a range of reliable suppliers to ensure we can still manage our client’s waste disposal needs, even if they are outside of their usual area.

This service is hugely advantageous to account customers as it enables them to order all their skips through us, rather than having to set up separate accounts with different companies in a number of different regions. We’ve secured preferential rates with these suppliers to ensure our customers are still getting the best prices possible and excellent value for money too.

Whether it’s soil, rubble, green waste, or general construction debris, our grab hire service can handle all types of waste.
Our grab trucks can safely and efficiently transport aggregates, topsoil, or other construction materials to your site.
From clearing demolition debris to preparing land for construction, our grab hire service streamlines the site clearance process.
