Where the products are used

In 2018, Biffa Waste Services Ltd acquired Weir Waste Services Limited, a leading provider of waste and recycling solutions in the West Midlands.

Biffa combined the two commercial collection businesses in the region that now serves 1,600 customers, operates a frontline fleet of over 45 vehicles, and runs a substantial recycling and waste treatment operation from a seven-acre freehold site at a key location in Birmingham.

Why they use our products

A Biffa truck driving along a street in LondonBiffa Waste Services has a policy of fitting Disc-Lock Safety Wheel Nuts to every vehicle in its fleet to eliminate the risk of loose wheel nuts and wheel loss. Totally committed to providing its customers with safe and secure services, the company uses the Disc-Lock solution to be able to carry out its day-to-day business with confidence.

The DLE solution

Biffa Waste purchased Disc-Lock Safety Wheel Nuts to retro-fit the entire Weir Waste fleet of frontline vehicles, after its acquisition in August 2018. This ensured a completely reliable wheel nut security system for use in their business collections around the West Midlands region.

Future projects

Biffa Waste are in the process of ordering a fleet of brand-new vehicles for various depots around the UK. They will be pre-fitted with Disc-Lock Safety Wheel Nuts at the dealerships who are supplying the vehicles.
