What is Muckaway?
Muckaway – also known as “cart away” and “tip” or “muck shift” – describes the removal of soil and associated waste materials from a construction site during earthworks operations.
Inert muck is defined as “waste that does not undergo any significant physical, chemical or biological transformations and is unlikely to adversely affect other matter with which it comes into contact”.
The service is normally required following:
- Soil strip – the excavation of topsoil, sometimes called vegetable soil.
- Reduced-level dig.
- Bulk excavation.
- Trench, hole or pit excavation.
On redevelopment sites, the removal of “inert muck away”, can often include brick, reinforced and broken up concrete, hardcore, stone, brick and subsoil.

Best solution for large muckaway operations
Our complete Grab Haulage service will handle single to multiple loads while wheel tippers are usually the best solution for larger muckaway and site clearance operations. Where required, we would also recommend the use of mini digger and dumper operators for ground works.
All our vehicles possess the latest technology and safety equipment and comply with the standards of the new Low Emission Zone regulations .
Compliance with Environment Agency procedures
The disposal of Clean Inert, Non Hazardous and Hazardous materials involves compliance with procedures as required by the Environment Agency and the Landfill Directive, which applies to waste destined for disposal onto or into land.
Each year an estimated 40 per cent – around 10m tonnes UK waste – comes from the Demolition and Construction Industry. To reduce waste a number of control procedures are adopted, including: Disposal to Landfill, Preparing for Re-Use, Recycling and Other Recovery. In support of environmental protection, we aim to also recycle most of the materials collected.
Extensive fleet to handle all muckaway jobs
Vehicles best equipped to handle most muckway or haulage jobs are 8 × 4 Grab and Tippers.
Tippers – lorries without cranes or buckets – are the most economical method of inert waste removal, with normally, a 5-tonne minimum excavator or loading shovel needed to load the trucks. Tippers come in three vehicle types – 2, 3 and 4 axle – with respective maximum weight capacities of 10, 15 and 20 tonnes.
8 Wheel tipper lorries can remove 20 tonnes of material each time. 8 Wheel grab lorries will load themselves and remove 15 tonnes per load. Unusually large loads may require 32 tonne grab lorries with extra-long reach cranes.
Sites with limited access may require a 4×2 grab lorry – or “baby grab” – which can remove 9 tonnes of material at a time.
