REM Waste / Acen


Not actually a skip hire firm, but a broker working with hire firms. This can often lead to delays and communication problems if not managed properly.

What’s confusing is that their company name is ‘REM Waste’, but the reference links to – Which doesn’t state a company number or registered data controller number. There is no such company registered at companies house either.

The details used to contact them (which is on a different domain) redirects to Renewable Energy Marketing’s skip hire page. It turns out the actual company name is “Renewable Energy Partners (UK) Ltd (09153457). However the terms of service state that the postal address is actually “Acen Utilities (06565110), …”trading as, or”.

On this site it appears to let you get an online quote, but this just takes your details and passes them to their sales team for a callback – unlike other operators we’ve seen this isn’t very transparent and means an additional phone call is needed. More worring is that the site does not use HTTPS at all, which means all the details you submit are available in plain text – don’t fill the details in on public wifi!

Although they state that they cover Nottingham, there’s a long list of areas they also claim to cover on their website. They provide skip and roll-on / roll-off hire only, and you can speak to them directly for a quote here.

Couldn’t Care Less

Rated 1 out of 5
28th July 2020

We had a skip sitting on our driveway for three months because they couldn’t get their agents (Bogan) to come and pick it up… Bogan refused to pick it up any other time than between six and eight in the morning, which didn’t work for our shift patterns.
Every time we phoned REM to try and get this sorted they just put us straight through to Bogan, even when we asked to speak to REM management. However the minute we sent them a notice before action that we’d take them to court for damages & distress their management got in touch to sort it out and refund our money.
