We are registered waste carriers able to dispose of general commercial or construction waste and recyclates of all types through a canal based Materials Recovery Facility operated by Powerday

Aggregates can also be supplied from the West London Powerday facility to canal side sites loose or bagged
Straightforward unloading by existing tower cranes allow the potential to close the recycling loop as well as removing lorry journeys from roads

Capitalizing on the strengths of canal freight we are able to move large volumes at a time resulting in a low environmental impact

Taking advantage of the inherent efficiencies of water transport Crowther & Towns are in a position to utilise this overlooked and underestimated transport artery.
