About ETS Waste Management Ltd
ETS Waste Management Ltd provide licensed waste clearance and rubbish removal services to both domestic and commercial customers throughout East Sussex. From our base in Eastbourne we can visit you and clear almost anything from almost anywhere!
Whether it’s furniture clearance, household rubbish, carpet and underlay, mattresses, fridge freezers, garden waste, soil, commercial waste, builders rubble, renovation waste, or anything else you can think of – ETS Waste can clear and legally dispose of it.
Our staff are uniformed, polite and efficient. We aim to complete every job with minimal fuss and as safely and quickly as possible.
As an ethical waste clearance company the environment is also very important to us. We only dispose of your waste at licensed waste transfer stations that recycle your waste. Any non-recyclable waste is used as a ‘waste-to-energy’ resource to help produce electricity, which reduces the use of fossil fuels and means waste is diverted from landfill!
No job is too big or small, so whether it’s a single item or multiple truck loads, we can take care of it for you at a reasonable price and with minimal disruption.

Meet the Team
Ricky is the Founder and Owner of ETS Waste Management Ltd, and your first point of contact should you get in touch for a quote. He carries out every clearance we do, so you are sure to meet him when you book an appointment.
Ricky’s wife Vicky assists with all the stuff that goes on behind the scenes. From social media to invoicing, Vicky can turn her hand to most things.
Ricky’s brother Mark assists with the loading of your old household items and waste onto our truck. He joined the company very recently and is a very polite and trusted member of staff. Mark is very efficient in his work and always happy to help customers.
ETS Waste Management Ltd started our journey in April 2017 as Eastbourne Tipper Services Ltd. Founder Ricky Sykes had just moved to Eastbourne from Surrey, and launched the business immediately upon arriving in the area.
The idea was to provide modern and professional waste clearance services in Eastbourne. Starting as a one-man operation, we quickly established a website with online quotation facilities, as well as WhatsApp and social media profiles to enable direct communication with customers, in whatever format suited them.
We hit the ground running, and although Ricky’s wife gave birth to a new baby that was born with difficulties at the end of year one, (resulting in a 7-month hospital stay for mother and baby in London) Ricky continued on as a one-man operation during this time. It was a difficult period that required the business to operate part-time Tuesday-Thursday, as Friday-Monday was spent with mother and baby at the hospital in London.
The business continued to bring in new customers however, and slowly grew through the very positive reviews left by happy customers on Checkatrade, Google and Facebook.
Thriving through Adversity
As year 3 came towards its end in early spring 2020 it was time to start growing the business! We began looking at expanding further out into East Sussex. This required a re-brand, changing our name from Eastbourne Tipper Services Ltd to the current ETS Waste Management Ltd. This also meant a website upgrade, truck upgrade and uniform upgrade, as well as the bringing in of Ricky’s wife Vicky, and brother Mark to the team.
Unfortunately, this was when the coronavirus, or Covid-19 hit the world, slowing progress once again. However, we fought through this setback (while overcoming a £6,000 truck repair bill at the end of June 2020 too!).
Our new website (the one you’re reading) was launched in March 2021, bringing our services to a much wider customer base throughout East Sussex. This brings us to the present day. From our base in Eastbourne we now cover most of East Sussex. So whether you’re close by in Polegate, Pevensey Bay or Hailsham, or further afield in Bexhill, Hastings, Lewes or Newhaven, we’ve got you covered.
ETS Waste Management Ltd support two charities that mean a lot to us and pledge to donate 2% of our profits to charity over the 2021/22 financial year.
Ricky and Vicky’s daughter Tiger-Lily has CCHS (Central Congenital Hyperventilation Syndrome). This means she has a tracheostomy and is ventilated when she sleeps. We pledge to donate 1% of all our profits during the 2021/22 financial year to CCHS UK, a UK-based charity that helps to fund research into Central Congenital Hyperventilation Syndrome.

Chestnut Tree House Charity
We pledge to donate an additional 1% of all profits during the 2021/22 financial year to the Chestnut Tree House Charity. This East Sussex-based charity provides respite for parents of children with disabilities and provides support and respite to our founder Ricky’s family on a regular basis. A fantastic local charity that we’re very happy to support.
