About GBN Services

GBN Services was incorporated in 1986 and has grown to become the leading skip hire, recycling and waste company across London and the South East. We have a strong regional presence supported by established UK wide partners.  Our customer-focused, reliable and sustainable services are reinforced by business operating systems accredited with ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001.

We began life as a haulage operator, based in Leyton and operating UK wide.  We progressed into skip hire, recycling and waste services in 1995, quickly establishing our strong reputation for putting customers first.  Needing to expand, we bought an additional depot in Basildon in 2001.  This allowed us to better serve the Essex area, expand our services and grow our business.  We haven’t looked back.  

In 2005, we made our first acquisition, with the purchase of NSM in Southgate.  Our expansion has continued throughout the last decade with the purchase of RCL skips (2005), Eco Logic and F Darlington (2006), Churn Waste (2007) and Ace Waste (2008).  By 2010, GBN had appeared at number 15 in the top 50 UK fastest growing waste companies (CIWM February 2010).  We went on to acquire Uxbridge Recycling and Bridgeman Skips in 2011 and, finally, Hunts Waste in 2012. Since then our focus has been on fully integrating the businesses under the one name, ensuring our commercial, construction and domestic customers receive the strong customer focus for which GBN Services has become known.

Our most recent developments have included an upgrade of our existing facilities and a brand new installation at our Basildon facility. Here we have invested in the latest equipment that allows us to bale and wrap materials that cannot be further sorted. At this stage, they are sent as refuse-derived fuel to generate energy. There are more details on this facility here.

GBN Services is privately owned and is part of RVL Holdings PLC who also provides storage solutions, bonded warehousing and logistics.


With a turnover in excess of £30 million, a growing staff base of over 300 and a commitment to investment and growth, GBN Services has the knowledge, experience and infrastructure to support all your recycling and waste needs now and in the future.
