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.”

Lucy Smith, Adventurize Ltd

“After a successful Science Festival in Cheltenham, we wanted to say a huge thank you for being an integral part of how the festival came together to make an enjoyable experience for so many visitors.

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

NR Events Team

“The service you have provided to us has been excellent. 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. Overall, the service has been brilliant and we have no hesitation in using your company on further projects around the country.”

JC Construction, Cardiff

“We have been working with you for many years now & wouldn’t even consider looking elsewhere after the amazing job that Adam & the team did again this year at USK Show. Our showground looked spotless all day & this is down to your hard work. Thank you for you continued support.”
