DJ Laing's skip hire service went on the road with one heavy goods vehicle in 1990.
In early 1990 the Company moved into Skip Hire and Waste Management services operating from 2 recycling centres; one based at Petterden just north of Dundee which specialises in the recycling of all types of timber, soil and stone materials with a capacity of handling 100,000 tonnes per annum. The other a state of the art recycling centre at Wester Gourdie Industrial Estate in Dundee which the company invested in in June 2010. This site has a capacity of receiving 100,000 tonnes of waste materials for recycling and is the base for our highly skilled Skip Hire fleet.
The fast growing waste management division has a fleet of heavy goods vehicles and over 600 skips and containers on daily waste collection services, from commercial, domestic and industrial contracts through Angus, Tayside and Fife transporting waste to our recycling centres.
In recent years introduction of Landfill Tax and European directives, minimise landfill maximise recycling, has created a major directional change in the waste management business.
