Civic Amenity and Recycling

With Barr, there’s no need to be down in the dumps.

From bottle banks to electronics disposal, we operate civic amenity and recycling centres in Heathfield, Garlaff and at Auchencarroch as well as our waste transfer centre at Southhook.


When it comes to landfill, Barr’s approach is clear and integrated.

Our recycling and waste treatment facilities at Garlaff and Auchencarroch also support our large landfill capacity. Waste that cannot be disposed of in any other way goes into these landfill sites. Simple.

We have a significant amount of space in our landfill sites, which is testament to our sustainable way of working and we aim to keep it that way. At our landfill sites we have energy infrastructure which converts the gas generated from the degradation of waste into electricity. Collectively, our landfill sites supply close to 6MW of electricity to the National Grid.

Skip Hire

Barr provides a range of skip hire services in the Ayrshire for commercial, industrial and domestic uses. Sizes range from 8 to 40 yard skips with full delivery and collection service. Both covered and uncovered skips can be provided from our bases.
