Energy from waste is an exercise in zero to hero.
Sustainability is crucial and we are committed to helping our clients comply with their obligations under the Scottish Zero Waste Plan.
Many of the materials we reclaim are suitable for use in energy recovery processes such as biomass, solid recovered fuel (SRF) and refuse-derived fuel (RDF).
Biomass, solid recovered fuel and refuse-derived fuel are particularly useful as they can be used at a suitable energy-from-waste facility (e.g. gasification plant) due to their high calorific value.
Such is our commitment to sustainability; Barr is investing significant time and resources into developing a new energy recovery park based at our Killoch site.
This park will process RDF and convert it into electricity powering a variety of onsite applications as well as connecting to the National Grid.

‘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.’
Brown and Steele
‘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.’
