  Waste Recycling Cover Story
 Fast growing business, SunSkips, was looking for a plant supply partner that could keep up the pace as their business continues to go from strength-to-strength post pandemic. A search that led them to invest in a new Sennebogen 817E material handler from the recycling machinery experts at Molson Green.
When the team behind Stowmarket based firm, SunSkips, snapped up the Stowmarket Skip Hire business in 2020, it was to pursue a vision to shake up the waste handling sector. With operations that now cover Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, the skip hire and waste handling specialist has certainly been positive in its pursuit of business as it looks to become the go-to name in the area.
Where others see the waste industry as a sector that has struggled to keep up with the uptake of new technology, SunSkips has embraced social media and the internet as fundamental touch points for its business.
Matt worked alongside Molson Green Sales Manager, Brian Bell, to help develop a strategy for improving the material handling equipment options at its Stowmarket yard.
Brian said, “The forward thinking and ambitious business model that SunSkips possesses, reflects that of Molson Green and Sennebogen. Matt and the team at SunSkips want it to be the leading firm in the sector and we see ourselves as kindred spirits. It has been a real pleasure to help them develop their fleet requirements.”
The yard at Stowmarket handles over 50,000tonnes of skip hire, construction, commercial and industrial waste each year, delivered to site through its fleet of skip lorries and ro-ro waste lorries. With such a high turnover of material the emphasis was on finding a compact waste handler that could work the concrete-slabbed yard efficiently. The Sennebogen 817E mobile material handler was the perfect fit.
Brian further explains, “The team was using an excavator with a grab attachment. A specialist yard needs equipment specifically manufactured for the job. The
Sennebogen 817E is the perfect option for the
SunSkips yard. It is designed to lift and move large loads of waste materials rather than excavate. The reach is incomparable to an excavator and
its rubber tyres mean there is less damage to the concrete floor.”
SunSkips, sets its sights on Sennebogen
    As part of its ambitious plans, the firm has expanded to take on a clutch of sites with Managing Director, Matt Stewart, working on the introduction of several more that are in the pipeline. He believes these sites will help cement SunSkips position as the area’s premier skip and waste handling company. Part of those ambitious plans is the continued development of a plant fleet dedicated specifically to the waste handling sector.
