Now, regarding recycling.
At waste management sites across Ayrshire and West Dunbartonshire, Barr accepts wood, metals, non-ferrous metals and glass for recycling into new materials.
If you are in any doubt as to what you can and cannot recycle, please read below or get in touch.
We can accept clean waste timber, mixed MDF, chipboard and finished wood for recycling into new materials and products.
Skips can be supplied for the separate collection of wood wastes.
We also accept wood wastes from domestic premises at our civic amenity sites in Ayrshire.
A metal medley.
Barr accepts all types of metals, for reprocessing and moulting; at each of our four sites and skip hire can be provided to assist in the segregation and uplift of metals.
Non-ferrous metals don’t contain any iron compound and are non-magnetic. These include copper, bronze, aluminium, brass and lead.
Ferrous metals are made up from iron compound and are magnetic. These include steel and cast iron.
We’re glass half full at Barr, and its important to note this material can be recycled time and time again into products such as bottles, jars, non slip surfaces and even white line road markings
No mucking about.
Barr produces nutrient-rich compost from your garden waste to the PAS 100 standard, meaning we can supply this material as a soil-improver and growth medium for a multitude of horticultural and agricultural applications.

‘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.’

‘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.’
