Construction Waste Management From 3yd skips to 40yd skips, Brown Recycling can supply a wide range of skips for your construction project and offer a full waste management service

Through our many years of experience we appreciate the ever growing and changing demands of the construction industry. We have developed a range of solutions to suit any size or complexity of a building project, including skip hire, muck away, and hazardous waste. We can manage all waste needs, from cradle to grave, and offer the greenest solutions for every waste type processed.

We can support site managers in developing their site waste management plan, and even offer zero-waste-to-landfill solutions on mixed loads from sites with limited space, or support a source segregated recycling solution in line with the waste hierarchy.

  • Wood
  • Scrap Metal
  • Rubble & Hardcore
  • Plastics
  • Hazardous Waste
  • Plasterboard
  • Soil

One of the largest waste components from the construction sector, it’s important that we do everything possible to avoid wood entering landfill. Whether it’s large lumber which can be reused, or scrap wood to be chipped for mulch, fuel or composite products, there are plenty of ways to recycle and reuse wood from the construction industry.

Since metal is an easy material to recycle and we ensure that all construction waste metal collected is recycled and put back into production. Helping to avoid unnecessary raw metal extraction, we take construction metal - including steel - whether it’s in the form of piping, beams or cable.

Bricks, concrete and general hardcore is a vital raw material for the construction industry. In an effort to divert this waste from landfill, we aim to collect either mixed or separated rubble and hardcore, recycling it to then be put back into use. Quality and contaminants need to be considered when assessing these materials for recycling, but we accept all rubble and hardcore for general waste disposal regardless.

Plastic waste on a construction site can range from shrink wrap used to package materials to PVC guttering and window frames. Plastic materials can be recycled by cleaning, separating and chipping down the material, creating new pellets to be used in manufacturing.

PETE, HDPE, PVC and LDPE plastics can all be recycled the majority of the time, while PP, PS and other miscellaneous plastics are not commonly recycled.

Whether it’s asbestos removed from a site, oils and fuels or fluorescent tubes, all hazardous waste needs to be disposed of legally and safely. Providing containment, packaging and documentation of your waste, we help you dispose of hazardous construction waste in the legal and proper manner.

Plasterboard from walls, ceilings and floors can be disposed of as whole boards or broken sections. All unwanted plasterboard waste can be broken down into a reusable material, avoiding the need for it to sit in landfill.

Large quantities of soil are excavated and processed each day at construction sites. Where the material is appropriate for recycling, an inspection is carried out to ensure it is uncontaminated and compliant with the criteria for acceptance. Blended in with fresh compost, the soil can then be put back into use.

We offer waste management for:

  • Mixed construction waste
  • Hardcore
  • Rubble
  • Plastics
  • Hazardous waste
  • Wood
  • Plasterboard
  • Scrap metal
  • Soil
