Waste & Recycling

Handling Everything

The more we consume, the more we throw away. And it’s all got to be moved.

Trucks used in waste and recycling need big bodies, typically to carry high volume, less dense loads such as wood, paper, plastics and scrap. As severely arduous tipping out on landfill sites gives way to working at purpose-built recycling centres, vehicle specifications can be fine – tuned to be ever more payload productive.

At Thompsons, we not only make hi-cube waste bodies to work with conventional tipper chassis but also a wide range of demountable bodies to use with hookloaders. Either way, a custom – built, weight – optimised Thompsons body provides the best possible operating solution.

Hookloader and skiploader platforms we provide too, with full installation and fitting out of over 250 units per year at our facilities in both Blackburn and Croydon.

  • High volume bodies up to maximum legal dimensions
  • Fine tuned to individual requirements
