UBU Operated Vehicles for Hire - Operated Road Sweeper, Jet Vac Whale Tanker, Precinct Sweeper, High Pressure Road Jetter
UBU Environmental Ltd is a family-owned and managed business which was incorporated in 1998. Legend has it that the initial purchase of the company’s first roadsweeper was a fortunate stroke of serendipity involving a burger van and missed JCB lot at an auction.
21 years later and UBU are the largest operated roadsweeper hire company in the North West, managing a fleet of over 120 Johnston sweepers, high pressure road jetters and jet vac whale tankers. Our business strategy is very simple in that we believe in continual growth in the area of performance and compliance coupled with a continual reduction in the quantities of roadsweeper waste going to landfill.

UBU ensure that waste received at our treatment plant is transported and treated using the correct EWCs. UBU understands that the Waste Producer has a responsibility to ensure their waste is transported, treated and or disposed of using the correct Environmental Waste Codes.
We ensure that there is a full Audit Trail of all applicable waste from ‘Cradle to Grave’. The EWC used for general Roadsweeping and jet vac tanker gully waste is 20 03 03 and this EWC should be listed on the ‘Permitted Waste Codes’ of any disposal facility which receives Roadsweeper waste.
Other permitted wastes include; leaves, litter, mud, dust and aggregates. UBU’s Jet Vac Whale Tanker can collect and remove waste from a diverse range of sources, such as drains, sewers, gullies, septic tanks and storage tanks.

We have used UBU Environmental for a number of years now due to their excellent service they provide both on and off site. Operationally; a very dynamic company who do their upmost to accommodate the inevitable constant changes that come with running a site(s). Very reassuring to see internal investment within a company resulting in consistently well maintained and clean plant, if not new. – Would Highly Recommend. Thanks UBU.
