S Roberts Group launches new BoomBags to meet demand for home and garden renovations

A family-run waste management company from Somerset has launched a new product to meet growing demand for home and garden improvements and to provide added convenience for customers.

S Roberts Group, which is based in Bridgwater, has created its new BoomBags in two sizes as an alternative to bulky skips for householders working in smaller spaces.

Beccy Roberts, Director of Waste Management, explains: “We’re very excited to launch our brand new BoomBags and to have them available now for hire via our online booking service.

“The pandemic has led to a surge in home and garden improvements as more and more people found they were spending greater time at home due to the restrictions and had available funds, as they weren’t dining out or holidaying, to get on with home refurbishments and renovations. We saw a gap in the market following the vast variety of large and small-scale projects that started happening in the first lockdown last year and this demand has continued throughout.

“What we were and are seeing is that people don’t necessarily need, or have, the space for a full-blown skip and wanted something smaller, more flexible and handier, but that essentially did the same job as a skip. Our bags are available in two sizes, the Midi and the Mega BoomBag, and they are designed to be smaller than typical skips and easier to fit into smaller gardens and spaces. They are highly durable and strong enough for all types of waste.”

The Midi BoomBag can hold up to one tonne of weight and measures (L) 90cm X (W) 90cm X (H) 90cm.

The Mega BoomBag can hold up to one and a half tonnes of weight and measures (L) 180cm X (W) 90cm X (H) 70cm.

Beccy continues: “We also want to provide convenience for both customers and contractors. Skips aren’t always the best solution in removing waste for small home improvements and the cost can quickly add up.

“In addition, organising waste removal can be quite a hectic part of the process and it’s essential to ensure a project runs smoothly, so with that in mind, we’ve also made it easier for customers to order and book their BoomBag online via our secure website.”

The BoomBags can be ordered via S Roberts Group’s easy-to-use online booking form here:

Beccy adds: “We also offer a next day service, as long as orders are placed before 12pm, excluding the weekends. We will then post the bag to you and when you are ready for it to be removed, you can either book a collection online or call us on 01278 457598. We will then aim to collect your bag within five working days from your request.”
