Container Disposal is a specialist company who provide the safe removal and disposal of unwanted shipping containers from places of business, building sites, private homes and other sites across the UK.

Don't keep an unwanted shipping container onsite once its surplus to requirements. Shipping containers take up valuable space and are rather unsightly. As they age and degrade they corrode and leak substances.

They have the potential to attract unwanted pests and as they deteriorate will become more hazardous and expensive to remove and safely dispose through licensed commercial recycling channels.

Container Disposal is the UK’s number one organisation for arranging, orchestrating and completing safe container recycling in the UK.

We require to know the perceived integrity of the container, is the integrity good, or corroded and rotten, we have been known to cut up and remove containers in situ as they have been deemed too dangerous for lifting and road haulage.

I found from the on-set Container Disposal were a very professional outfit to deal with. Every stage of our container disposal Mark coordinated it with military precision. Every action, proposal, and function was followed by an extremely polite, articulate and methodical email.I wish I had used them sooner, as the others were a nightmare!It was a pleasure dealing with them, & I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.

The removal of the containers was accomplished, however the lorry driver arrived 15 mins or so late and instead of collecting one container at a time he brought a trailer and loaded both on the one trip. Whilst this saved time it meant I had to move my parked car to get the combined lorry and trailer out of the site entrance. Had I been advised of the change of plan I would have parked my car elsewhere.

A pleasure to deal with and the whole exercise was hassle free with no hidden charges. A service I'd recommend if you have shipping containers to dispose of.
We had an old container at our yard that was a struggle to get removed. Called these guys up and they took care of everything quickly and with out any issues or drama. Highly recommended!

Our containers were old and very tired so needed removing and disposing of. Container-disposal responded the same day with a no nonsense quote. The whole process was easy and effortless. The containers were gone in less than 7 days from the original contact being made. A refreshing change to find a company that does what they say, when they say, how they say with no hidden extras! Highly recommended
