Waste is not a dirty word.
Across the West of Scotland, our integrated and comprehensive waste treatment is recognised as the best in the business.
With our fleet of refuse collection vehicles, skip hire, specialised materials recovery processes, and fully licensed disposal facilities – Barr is fully equipped to provide our public and private sector clients with satisfying, end to end solutions.
Staffed by dedicated and talented personnel in superbly appointed facilities, we strive for customer peace of mind whilst ensuring recycling rates are achieved and all regulatory requirements are met.
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.
Barr provides a range of skip hire services in the Ayrshire and Dunbartonshire 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.
We keep the waste cycle turning.

We also supply colour-coded and labelled internal waste bins for use in offices, kitchens, etc., to facilitate as much recycling as possible and our individual bags mean that all refuse can be collected in a single skip or collection vehicle, helping our customers to waste everything except money.

‘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.’
