Jettison are a full-service clearance and waste management company, offering bulky waste clearance services for both commercial & industrial premises. We handle the difficulty of safely disposing of waste, ensuring that it’s recycled, removed and disposed of responsibly.
Jettison can remove almost any junk materials without you having to lift a finger and you’re safe in the knowledge that your rubbish will be handled appropriately. Your waste collection is our top priority & we’re happy to do all the hard work for you.
Some examples of the clearance jobs we undertake include: Commercial premises, offices, storage units, garages, basements, warehouses and house clearances – pre & post move.
We also offer secure shredding and secure destruction of IT equipment.
We’re a small, innovative business based in Glasgow but we carry out work across the UK. We’re a tight knit team with many years of experience in the waste management industry. We don’t believe in gimmicks or bells and whistles. Our energies are focused on our client needs and providing value for money. This ethos has served us well as we work with some well known household names & a significant portion of our business comes via recommendations.
We enjoy nothing better than taking on a project or challenge other companies might shy away from. We’re a ‘think on your feet & out of the box’ kind of team and we’ll always come up with a solution for our clients, albeit this might take a bit of head scratching.
Collectively, we have experience of working with Universities, Colleges, Property Management Companies, Hotels, Student Accommodation, Facilities Management Companies, Residential Developments, large Retail premises and City Centre offices. Take a look at our News page to see some of the clearances we’ve done.
We’re happy to provide references where required and we’re proud to be SafeContractor Approved along with our ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications.
Ross Martin –Managing Director / Rock Star
Ross has many years of experience in the waste management industry having set up and successfully run a similar company over the past 14 years. After developing that business as far as was possible and feeling the general waste market had become too cluttered, Ross decided to put his experience, enthusiasm and innovation to good use and started Jettison - A fresh new business model totally focused on a target market and committed to delivering excellence and personal service at all times.
In his spare time, Ross is a wannabe rock star – playing not only the bagpipes but drums and guitar too. He’s ever hopeful of a call from Jools Holland…and not because he’s having a clear out..
Tracey McCallum – Accounts Manager / Horse Whisperer
Tracey has worked with Ross & Dave for several years and as well as keeping them in check, she looks after HR and Jettison’s customers too. If there’s anything you need, just give her a call or drop her a line. Outside of work, Tracey is a volunteer Riding Instructor at Riding for the Disabled, dog lover, cook and keen traveller –so much so she’s known affectionately to her colleagues as Judith Chalmers.
Dave Gordon – Head of Operations / Ninja
Dave has years of experience in the waste management industry working in both North America and Scotland. He’s the guy that looks after all the staff training, the maintenance of our vehicles and sorts the logistics for every job. Dave will ensure the truck teams are fully briefed before they arrive with you – ensuring a slick, professional service. If you’ve got a problem, he’ll have a solution. When he’s not got his hands full juggling schedules, Dave is a keen martial arts enthusiast –even honing his skills in Japan.
Steven Craig – Senior Truck Team Member/ Sharp Shooter
Steven who’s based in Edinburgh is the quiet one in our team but he’s a safe pair of hands and before you know it, your job is done. In his spare time Steven enjoys working with his gun dogs and he applies the same consistent quietness and calm to that as he does to his role at Jettison.
Nancy – Office Junior
Still on her probationary period, Nancy is showing great potential. Her tea making skills need improvement and she’s often caught snoozing. However, she’s always ready to offer a warm welcome to visitors and she’s excellent at rounding up the truck teams.
We can take most items, except for food waste and asbestos.
Every clearance job is different. We will assess each job individually and provide costs and timescales to suit. Give us a call and we’ll take it from there.
If you call to organise a quote or book in a job -sometimes we can arrange for the same day but generally a day or so notice is perfect. We’ll schedule an appointment that suits you and a member of the team will give you a courtesy call 15 or 20 minutes minutes before arrival.
Our invoices are payable on receipt & we email them out on completion of your job. The majority are paid online or by BACS transfer, however, our truck teams can accept cash or cheques on the day.

I think we can all agree, photos of other people’s rubbish are far from sexy. Hopefully these images will give a flavour of the typical types of clearances we routinely carry out. Here’s a small selection of some of the smaller clearances we’ve done.
