We are aiming to change the perception of the waste industry

Historically, the waste industry has been perceived as dirty and not environmentally minded. This is the perception that we want to change. By encapsulating all of our company goals, we can make this change and set ourselves aside from the competition.

We have experienced both sides of the coin when it comes to customer service. We care about how we are treated and therefore how we treat both our customers and suppliers. Your business matters to us whether we are servicing your skips correctly to paying invoices in time.


We are going to embrace the future now. Whether this is new skip software saving our customer’s time and money or new machinery to recycle or reuse waste, we want to explore and embrace. By embracing change we change the perception of the waste industry.


Locally, we have seen the end of landfill in Dorset. We have embraced this and will do our utmost to recycle or reuse our waste. We believe that we have a duty ­to protect our planet, and as such are striving for 100% diversion from landfills. For more information please see our Environmental page.  More about our environmental policy...


We are going to make your experience better. Whether you are a customer ordering a skip or one of our trusted partners where we dispose of waste, we will treat you as we would want to be treated. For customer and supplier service, we won’t be beaten. We will be as simple as possible by telling the truth, warts and all.


Our business is based around our employees. Therefore to have a great business we need to employ the best. We want our employees to continue to learn and progress.


We believe that it is our responsibility to give back, whether this is to charities or to local communities. We are engaging with local schools and offering work experience.

Our History


Our history

Back in 2007, we were established as A&D Skips with only one lorry and a small yard in Poole, Dorset. Over a short period of time and with increased amounts of business, two further lorries and additional skips were acquired. By 2012, we had four lorries and 200 skips to our name.

In September 2013, A&D Skips Co Ltd received new ownership and new investment. This investment has seen a large increase in turnover, with six new Volvo skip lorries, two new RoRo lorries, a new recycling centre and doubling the amount of skip and RoRos available.

On 1st July 2017, we rebranded to The Waste Group to embrace the future and all it may hold.

I contacted The Waste Group to obtain a skip as part of a house move. The booking process was very easy and they were extremely helpful and accommodating and able to fit around my timetable with very little notice. The skip was delivered and collected exactly as arranged and the whole process worked perfectly. I would use the company again without hesitation and am happy to recommend them.

Family firm, neat & tidy, lovely delivery men, good, quick service.

The services provided by The Waste Group are everything a company would hope for from a skip supplier.

Thank you for the good service.

Whenever I contact you / your office I get a quick friendly response and I’ve had no complaints from site which means no complaints from me.

We have been using The Waste Group for over a year now and have found then to be both reliable and economical. It is also good to know that our waste is now being used sustainably.
