At Barr, we don’t shy away from the difficult stuff.
We provide a comprehensive hazardous waste disposal service dealing with material such as asbestos, Japanese knotweed, batteries, used oil, and waste electrical equipment (WEEE).
We are here to help.
If you are at all unsure about how to dispose of certain waste please consult our handy list below or get in touch.
Barr can accept hazardous wastes, such as unwanted household and motor vehicle batteries, motor oil, cooking oil, and electrical equipment such as televisions, fridge-freezers and computers.
Our civic amenity facilities at Garlaff and Heathfield are more than a match for these types of materials.
(Please note that we can only accept these wastes from domestic premises.)
Barr has the most significant capability and capacity to handle asbestos waste in Scotland.
Our ADR certified drivers operate a fleet of vehicles and specialised skips for the safe carriage of fibrous and cement-bonded asbestos to our PPC compliant disposal sites and we can also provide all regulatory paperwork required by SEPA.
Knot on our watch.
Barr has a depth of experience in managing the disposal of Japanese Knotweed.
Please contact us to discuss your specific hazardous waste requirements.

‘I recently undertook a major garden project which required hiring skips. My choice of hire company was Barr Environmental, a local company. The service was outstanding from the transport manager who could not have been more helpful and flexible to all of the drivers who without exception were very professional and skilled. All were cheerful despite some appalling weather. This company made the experience a lot less stressful for me and I cannot praise them enough.’
‘We are a small construction company with tight deadlines. Due to finance and workloads, we often order multiple skips for one day, to come at certain times. Barr Skip Hire provide the service as required and they are brilliant with my customers, always taking care of their property.’
