Nationwide solutions for construction waste management

Recycling Lives construction waste solutions offer much more than just skips and bins to collect site waste. Our services allow you to consolidate and manage any and all waste across all sites with one supplier. We offer nationwide skip hire services, able to supply skips, bins and ROROs of all sizes to locations nationwide through our national skip brokering service.

Working with main contractors, construction firms and SMEs, we develop construction waste management plans to improve operational efficiencies around the removal and recycling of waste. We can make simple changes to the way waste is handled on and off site to reduce the costs and environmental impact of waste disposal. All this is done while ensuring the highest safety standards around waste removal on sites.

Creating social value in the Construction sector

All our construction waste management services contribute to the creation of significant social value - so your construction recycling becomes a charitable process. Your contracts can support our programmes to create opportunities:

  • HMP Academies - offenders in prison undertake meaningful work, in recycling and waste management processes, to gain transferable life and work skills ahead of release;
  • Residential Support - individuals who would otherwise be homeless are supported to regain their independence and move into work and housing;
  • Food Redistribution - small charities and community groups are supported to reduce their running costs and expand their service offering as we redistribute surplus food from supermarkets and suppliers to them.
