Skip Hire and Scrap Metal Recyling

R and J Farrow Ltd was first established by our parents, and our father delivered his first skip in 1972. Since then the business has developed year on year and is now run by his two sons. We have grown from a small site in Harmby, Leyburn to, in 2011, a large, fully licensed waste transfer facility in Brompton on Swale, Catterick. There are now 20 of us at R and J Farrow Ltd, to help keep up with the growing demand for environmentally responsible waste disposal. We have grown our business so that we can now provide skip hire for an area covering the Dales, Richmondshire, across to Darlington, Barnard Castle, Thirsk, Ripon, Northallerton and everywhere in between!

Recycling Waste

Focused as we are on recycling, we ensure as little of your waste as possible is sent to landfill. During a typical month we process around 25 tonnes of waste, only 5% of which goes to landfill. The other 95% is sent on to further licensed facilities throughout Yorkshire and beyond for recovery and re-use. We work closely with the Environment Agency, ensuring we are fully compliant with regulations and up to date with new developments. We hold the newly required WAMITAB certifications giving us Environment Agency approval to run our transfer and treatment facility.

All legal obligations are fulfilled when your waste is brought in to us; waste is weighed in on our purpose built weighbridge, which generates a waste transfer note for ourselves and our clients.We will also provide waste management reports on request. Permits for the sites we use for disposal of your waste are available on request.

Fully licenced scrap dealers

Having been scrap metal dealers for over 70 years, we have seen a number of changes to the industry, mainly the amount of regulation now attached to it. Rest assured, however, we still pay good prices for scrap.

Bringing your scrap to us is easy, just:

  • Give us a call or drop in
  • Bring suitable ID (Drivers License/Passport)
  • We provide weight ticket/transfer note
  • We pay you immediately either by cheque or bank transfer
