Street Cleaning & Road Sweeping

UBU Environmental Ltd offers operated Road Sweeper Hire to various sectors including construction, new build, airside, post event, emergency response and planned maintenance industries. We have a quality driven infrastructure which includes a purpose built depot close to motorway networks, trained and competent operatives, wet waste licenced treatment facility, on site plant fitters and maintenance team, service vans, hire desk department, waste and OCR Road Haulage managers and Iosh and Nebosh health and safety and training managers.  

As most of our work covers both municipal street cleansing and heavier duty work, we have found the Johnston VT range to be the most efficient in both performance and efficiency, and as such the V range represents over 95% of our fleet. From personal experience we find that the Johnston V Range delivers consistently high pick-up performance when collecting both road planings and inert waste.

The road sweeper is also available in conjunction with the high pressure road jetter for ultimate cleaning which brings dirty road surfaces back to their former glory!

We have been using UBU sweeper service on our site for around 4 or 5 months now, and we have noticed the difference in service and quality from the last company we used. Drivers are on time, efficient and go out of their way to help. We have been very impressed with the service from the drivers and office staff.
