Highlander has an unrivalled collection equipment portfolio in the marketplace, with walk-in containers from 14 yard3 to 50 yard3 available and in open top, closed, sliding roof, curtain side and compactor container options in circulation also, available for both short term hire for one-off clearances or the like, or on long-term hire for your ongoing wastepaper collection and recycling needs.


Highlander operates 2 types of skip trucks capable of lifting all sizes and capacities of container we offer – “HL5” hook-lift vehicles for applications that require smaller skips and for sites that have less storage space available and “HL20” hook-lift vehicles which carry larger containers up to 50 yard3, capable of transporting heavier materials, with much higher payloads.


We own and operate over 200 collection containers, servicing a wide variety of different customers from printing, packaging, transport and logistics, confidential waste, retail, NHS sites and many more and we are sure to have a container in stock to suit your needs – contact us now at or 01355 524 215 for more information on how we can provide the right container, for your businesses’ wastepaper volumes.



Highlander operates over 2000 tubs in constant circulation each week and these are ideal for printers and packaging companies, who have restricted factory and yard space and need to move waste efficiently from point of generation to the final point of collection by Highlander vehicles. Easily moved by forklifts and only 60kg in weight, these are light, but robust and can hold up to 200kgs of wastepaper per unit (Subject to nature and quantity of materials loaded). Easy to move and to stack, these can be safely stacked up to 4-6 units high, saving you valuable working space within your operations and yard areas.
