bmi trailers were selected as the preferred supplier to supply 30 new waste transfer trailers to Monks Contractors who recently won the contract issued by Lancashire County Council. (LCC), working with Lancashire Renewables Limited (LRL) which started on 1st September 2020.
bmi's after-sales, service and technical team were on-site to be on-hand to help with the roll-out of Monk's new contract, our teams were there to help guarantee a smooth rollout. We stand by our excellent customer service and after-sales commitment to our customers and this has helped us to become one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of bespoke Waste Ejector, Tipping, and Walking Floor® trailers.
The trailer order which was delivered last month is split between 16 bmi ejector trailers and 14 bmi Moving floor® trailers. The bmi ejector is the industry benchmark product for off-road bulk waste handling. Their popular and market-leading moving floor trailers, of which Monks Contractors already run several on their existing fleet, is the choice of many of the UK’s leading waste management processors and hauliers. Both sets of trailers feature several new safety features at the request of Chris Monk, these include tyre auto inflation, roll stability, remote control functions for floor system, sheeter and air-assisted rear door lock release, all features to provide maximum safety benefits for the drivers on this contract.
LRL was established for the operation and management of two Central Waste Treatment Facilities built for the Lancashire Waste Contract. Their key objectives are to receive, treat and transport contract waste and Monks Contractors have won the contract to provide the vehicles for this service for the next 5 years, which includes a fleet of 30 x bmi trailers, comprising of ejector trailers and walking floors®. Monks Contractors was born over 25 years ago by Chris Monk and his wife Louise, they have a fleet of 40 wagons, comprising of landfill and road units and jetting wagons. They have a vast range of plant machinery, offering some of the most sought out waste equipment required in the industry.
The team at Monks Contractors are very proud of how far they have come and can class themselves as one of the most successful and relied upon waste contractors in the UK working closely with Companies such as Veolia, Suez, Biffa, FCC Environment, and Viridor.
Managing Director Chris Monk told us “We are thrilled to have won this contract and we can’t wait to get started in the coming months. It is another positive step forward for the business and we only hope and expect similar contracts to come our way going forward. We strive for success here, we are always looking for ways to grow, learn, and develop as a business.

Monks Contractors who are based in Mellor Brook in Lancashire, have been working with bmi Trailers since 2007, and have developed a great relationship, where they share design ideas and Monks are the ‘go-to’ company when bmi design new trailers, and they need a successful company to trial their new design concept on behalf of bmi’s R&D team. Recently Monks have joined bmi’s national service network and can provide excellent service back -up to not just their own fleet, but other customers based in or passing through the North West region.
Managing Director and founder of bmi trailers, Brendan McIlvanna told us “We are delighted to have won this contract. The team at bmi has worked with Monks Contractors for many years and we are delighted to be working with Chris and his team at Monks Contractors, a company that has extensive experience in the waste sector.
