About us

Based in Leeds but serving clients across the UK, we specialise in IBC and drum laundering, reconditioning, and recycling.


Company history

In 2005, Clifford O’Donovan purchased a rundown drum yard in Leeds and transformed it into an IBC reconditioning and recycling facility. Since then, all profits have been reinvested into the business, and we now process up to 300 IBCs per day for a multitude of clients.

Sustainable values

Sustainability is our core focus, and we’re proud of our state-of-the-art recycling facility and water treatment plant. We’re committed to achieving our goal of sending zero waste to landfill and have a strict environmental policy which underpins everything we do.
