Skip Hire & Waste Management

As licensed waste carriers the core of our business is skip hire & waste management. From our licensed waste transfer station in Barnard Castle, we run a fleet of skip wagons, covering County Durham and Yorkshire.

Don't fall victim to cowboy skip hire companies who make promises they can't keep.Once you've ordered a skip from us you can be assured we wont let you down.

We would like to take this opportunity to confirm our commitment to you of a fast & efficient service and the guarantee that your waste is been disposed of responsibly!!

Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP)
SWMPs are a legal requirement in England for all construction projects begun after 6th April 2008, worth over £300,000.We regularly work with National contractors and are competent at supplying SWMP data upon request.

Farm Waste
Just get a skip and we will wait while you load us- as easy as that!
We will then provide you with the relevant Duty of Care Note which proves your farm waste has been disposed of legally.
Alternatively bring it into our transfer station yourself - Please contact us first before you set off to make sure it is convenient. Please phone for a no obligation quote.

PLASTERBOARD  - Under EA guidelines from 1st April 2009 there is no acceptable amount for gypsum based products to be deposited at landfill alongside bio-degradable waste. With immediate effect we ask that if you have any plasterboard to remove from site - could you ensure it is seperated from other waste. If there is a small amount it would be acceptable for you to bag it up and place it on top of the mixed waste skip (must be level load when plasterboard on top) at no extra cost. If there is a substantial amount we would ask that you hire a seperate skip - please ask for quote.

All businesses have a duty to ensure that all waste generated as part of a business activity is handled safely and legally.
Businesses are responsible for ensuring the safe and proper disposal or recovery of their waste, even after they have passed it on to another party (e.g. a waste contractor, scrap metal merchant, council or skip hire company or cowboy!!!)
This responsibility has no time limit, and extends until the waste has either been finally and properly disposed of - or fully recovered!!
