A little bit about what we do for you.


Producing The Perfect Foil For Your Soil.

With Barr, the grass is always greener.

From the 18,000 tonnes of domestic and commercial green waste processed across our waste and recycling operations per year, we are able to produce nearly 8000 tonnes of exceptional compost.

We call it BarrGrow®.

BarrGrow® is an accredited compost and soil improver that is free to the general public.

This groundbreaking product can be used for domestic and commercial landscaping, horticultural and agricultural projects and as reinstatement material for housing projects.

BarrGrow® has been used extensively by the public as well as in ventures at local schools and the restoration of Dumfries House, led by HRH The Prince of Wales.

We supervise a fleet of covered and uncovered skips, which can be provided to collect green waste or can be used to deliver BarrGrow® to any appropriate location.

BarrGrow® is available from our recycling and resource management facilities located at Garlaff and Heathfield as well as other local authority outlets.

You can call us on 0800 848 8181 if you would like to receive rates for BarrGrow®.
