Specialist Clearance Services
With over 40 years of experience, we have become the trusted experts in Specialist Clearance Services, managing over 60,000 properties each year. Working with a wide variety of businesses, authorities and organisations, our national teams are professionally trained to handle extreme cases, from severe hoarding incidents to drug dens and hazardous waste that most companies simply cannot or will not manage.

Clearing properties or sites not only gets rid of unwanted, unsightly waste, but it also has many other health & safety and insurance benefits. For example, excess rubbish and waste can pose a higher risk of fire within properties and extreme cases can often affect insurance claims. Similarly, external waste and overgrown foliage can also lead to pest issues that not only pose a serious health risk, but can also cause costly damage to properties.

We work with our environmental service partners to dispose of all waste safely and responsibly to ensure that as much as possible can be recycled or reused rather than ending in landfill. Orbis are SafePPQ verified, ISOQAR registered, an Environment Agency Registered Carrier and are fully compliant with the Waste Electric and Electronic Regulations (WEEE).

Our comprehensive range of specialist cleaning services include –

Needle Sweeps

Our highly trained needle sweep and sharps teams have many years of experience in the removal of needles and syringes. Our teams will quickly and safely remove such items from all types of commercial or domestic properties, before disposing of them responsibly through our accredited waste partners. This service will often undergo a deep cleaning process to ensure that affected areas are also decontaminated to remove the risk of contamination and health and safety hazards.

Hoarding clearance

Hoarding items and waste is often a complex mental issue that often stems from everyday people becoming unwilling to let go of possessions, which can sometimes spiral out of control. We understand that each case has its own back story and our teams are highly mindful of this when undergoing these types of clearances. We will work with the customer and resident to remove waste from these properties in a manner that best suits each individual situation.



Fly-tipping is a common occurrence usually committed by groups of opportunistic individuals. During 2018/2019, according to the Department for Environmental Food & Rural Affairs there were 1,072,000 incidents in the UK alone, which was an increase of 8% from the previous year. Our team can apply preventative measures such as CCTV or perimeter security, or reactive clearance services to immediately remove waste and help prevent land being seen as a preferable dumping spot for likeminded offenders.

Hazardous waste removal

We pride ourselves on providing a hazardous waste collection service that is both safe and quick for our customers. Our team are highly trained to remove all types of hazardous material, from aerosols, paint and oils, to batteries or toxic items. All operatives are fully trained and properly equipped with the latest PPE to ensure absolute safety for our customers and all waste is then responsibly disposed through our environmental partners.
