Today, Barr Environmental warmly welcomed new members from the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (CIWM) Scotland to two of our recycling and resource management facilities in Ayrshire.

Gordon Whiteford, Senior Operations Manager and fully chartered member of CIWM, hosted the visit by explaining the operational and technical infrastructure that has been implemented at our Heathfield and Garlaff facilities that enables the business to recover resource to reuse from waste in a safe and compliant manner.

Visitors were able to view the construction & demolition material recovery facility, transfer station and household waste recycling centre at Heathfield as well as the MSW material recovery facility, garden waste processing facility, leachate treatment and gas regeneration plant at Garlaff. The visit was aided by some glorious Ayrshire weather!
