What our training customers say

“Smiths provided an excellent waste management service during the festival, keeping the site clean throughout and bins emptied regularly. The site was left clean, litter-free and tidy afterwards, so all in all a 5* service.”

We look forward to working with you again for future projects.”

Smiths skips have been extremely professional, the drivers are very polite and have helped us out of a few tight spots which has enabled our very tight schedule to finish on time.
