CHANGING THE WAY YOU MANAGE WASTE

It’s not just what you need to get rid of. It’s how you dispose of waste that really matters. It matters because of legislation. It matters because getting it wrong can damage pockets, businesses and reputations. It matters because when you work with the right waste management partner – a partner who handles everything from permits to recycling - life is easier.

We know effective waste management isn’t your goal. It’s the thing you need to do to create the space for whatever’s next. Yet whether your project is garden clearance or site remediation, effective waste management is our goal. It’s all we do. And we’ve been helping households and businesses do it since 1972.

Let’s move recycling forward. Talk to GB Waste Management about skip hire and waste management services for your home or business.

1972
GB Skips HeritageSTART OF G&B - Aged 21, Brian already knew he wanted to start his own business. With his friend Gordon he bought a lorry with a compressor. That was the start of G&B – ‘Gordon and Brian’. Eventually it became G&B compressor hire. He hired out mobile compressors and as his business grew he acquired more and more lorries.

1985
We purchased our first yard office and storage space in South Woodford, and started supplying tipper lorries to the London Borough of Newham.

1986
Our business changed, leading to a change in direction to skip hire. We bought up a mini-skip hire business of one lorry and 6 mini skips.

1995
We purchased our Macks Skips in Leyton. They had about 200 skips and key admin staff and drivers, trading by this time as GB Macks Skips.

“This was a substantial move for us,” says Brian. “It significantly changed the way in which we carried on business. Before, we had simply hired out our skips and paid others to tip our waste into their site. Now we had our own waste transfer station to collect waste before it went to landfill.”

2000
GB gains the WAMITAB (Waste Industry Training and Advisory Board) Certificate of Technical Competence.

2007
Trading as GB Skips we moved to our current Silvertown base, setting up and equipping a complete waste transfer station, installing a weighbridge, employing new staff and exploring new lines of business. These included rubbish clearance, waste management and scrap metal dealing.

2013
Keen to attract customers from a wider geographical base we opened our second waste transfer station in Roebuck Road, Hainault. State-of-the-art equipment means we can handle waste efficiently to help us meet and exceed our target of 85% recycling.

2014
This year we are confident that an upturn in the economy will bring in a new customer base as people start to clear their old homes and offices and make fresh starts. Long overdue building works are getting started at last – their sites will all need careful waste management. Brian and Sheila can step back happy that their growing family business is in the safe hands of their children.

John Wood - JAW Roofing - Director
In recent years GB have offered a range of services to solve our waste problems. Each of these have been carried out in the most prompt, efficient and professional manner. With highly competitive rates and impeccable service GB offer the complete package when dealing with any waste issues. In my 8 years of dealing with them I am yet to come across any complications and I would strongly recommend them.

Mrs Pitt - Woodford Green - Resident
I received exceptional service from start to finish. I found the staff courteous and efficient, they could not have been more helpful. I needed a skip urgently. They helped with the size of skip and asked its usage etc. so that the skip they suggested wouldn't be over weight once filled. It arrived the next day by 8am! They were even able to help me with last minute requests of boards (for the skip to sit on)! The skip was collected 3 days later (as requested by me) and again they arrived within the time slot they had given me. The whole experience was professional and painless! I would highly recommend them and would not bother looking elsewhere!

Ali Kholghi - Barking Hotel
Hi Ben and Patrick, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your excellent services over the past two years. You have always been consistently efficient, profesional and friendly. All your drivers are very kind and extremely polite to us and deliver and collect skips with a smile. At one point we were so pleased with one of your drivers and wished to tip him, but he did not accept and said that it was his duty. We have been in business for over 30 years and developed many properties and dealt with many skip companies, but none of them have quite matched up to your standards.
We wish you all the best of luck and success in the future.

Ama Waste
GB supply skips for us across East London and Essex. We have worked closely with them since the start of our operation 7 years ago and we cannot recommend them highly enough. They have an excellent team of staff who are friendly, helpful and efficient. Their speed of service and reliability is second to none and their willingness to go out of their way to help us at short notice on difficult jobs is really quite unusual in this industry. They have literally supplied 1000s of skips for AMA over the years and I would struggle to find one complaint.

London Borough of Newham
Since 2007 GB have supplied us with all different sizes of skips while we regularly use both waste transfer stations. In time we have built up an excellent working relationship, particularly down to the efficient and professional manner GB operate. LBN and GB have worked along side each other to ensure all waste projects are dealt with in the most economical and environmentally friedly way. GB are our first point of call for any waste issues in both London Borough of Newham and any other areas. I would highly recommend GB as they have consistently proved to be one of the leading companies in the waste industry and look forward to cementing our affiliation in the future.
