Our Business Is Rubbish

Jettison UK

Then We Recycle Over 90% Of It

Ross Martin from Jettison UK

Rubbish Removal and Recycling 90% of it is Jettison Ltd’s business.

After 15 years of owning and building a well known local waste removal brand and taking that business as far as he felt it could go in it’s existing format, Ross Martin feeling ready for a new challenge, left the business and set up Jettison Ltd as an entirely new enterprise.   

Despite opening up just six months before the first lock down, Jettison – focused on commercial and industrial waste clearances  –  got off to a flying start with projects including stripping out the closed Thorntons stores across the UK and clearing the entire campus of Penrith Agricultural College. 

Jettison’s focus is large scale clearances which include fly tipping removal and clearing out full buildings including offices, hotels and industrial units. These jobs are project managed by Ross from start to finish to ensure minimal disruption for clients, maximum value for money and that as much waste as possible is repurposed or recycled.  

Ross particularly loves the challenges and problem solving involved in these projects and always finds the right solution for the client no matter the constraints of the job.

With this side of things thriving and with so many established contacts from his previous business getting in touch, it soon became clear that there was still a demand for reliable and trustworthy smaller scale local uplifts. As this type of work demands an entirely different approach from the large scale jobs, Ross set up sister company Jettison Express which offers same day pick ups for anyone looking to dispose of awkward and unwanted items as quickly as possible.

This local and speedy service is ideal for both small businesses with a pile of waste, including secure document or IT destruction, or for private individuals looking to clear renovation debris after home improvements, loft and garage clearances or to clear a property in preparation for sale. Jettison Express are a preferred supplier for a number of estate agents and solicitors across the city and often deal with executory clearances after a home owner has passed away.       

With a great network of trusted partnerships, Jettison can also help clients looking for cleaners or tradesmen – offering clients a professional all round service. 

With so many cheap ‘man and a van’  options available and fly-tipping rife, Jettison and Jettison Express are keen to separate themselves by offering trust. Anyone using their services can be confident that the truck team turning up at their property are professional, uniformed and that their waste is being disposed of in the most appropriate and environmentally friendly way.

Despite Jettison and Jettison Express being new brands, the team brings over 30 years combined experience of the waste industry and there’s not much they haven’t seen. Personal service is key to the success of the business, anyone calling or emailing will always be able to get through to Ross or Tracey directly. Based in the southside, Jettison works all over the UK while Jettison Express focuses on Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Central Belt. They are registered with the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, SafeContractor, hold ISO9001 and ISO4001 accreditations and recycle over 90% of the waste collected.
