"Personally I would take the largest digger I could in there rip everything out including roots, get a 40yrd skip get all the rubbish in it and smash it all up into the skip with the digger. What is the width of the widest access point?"

"A good micro digger operator with a grapple and access to a fail or scrub mower like AS's or Etesia's would be high on my agenda, along with need to 'mulch as much as possible' to reduce green waste costs."

"Also worth asking if they are happy for you to burn the green waste on site as otherwise there could be many loads to take away. I'd personally opt for using a mini digger and old hedge cutter to clear the site."
