At Hawes we are passionate about recycling waste and reducing the amount that goes to landfill.

All of the waste we collect in our skips is recycled at our purpose-built state-of-the-art recycling facility at our head office in High Wycombe.

We have invested £3m in our recycling facility and we are proudly committed to diverting up to 100% of waste from landfill. We have been approved by Bucks County Council and licenced by the Environment Agency so rest assured we are a company you can trust.

RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel)

Waste materials which cannot be recycled, with the exception of hazardous or contaminated waste, are sent for reprocessing into ‘refuse derived fuel’ (RDF) to be used by energy plants. Collecting materials which can be economically and practicably recycled and making use of the combustible residual waste as a potential source of fuel makes environmental and economic sense. It is also consistent with UK Government policy, which includes developing more low-carbon, secure sources of energy supply.

Mixed Wood

Wood can be reclaimed from many demolition, refurbishment and subsequent new build sources, including floorboards, rafters, doors, frames, offcuts, temporary works, fencing, posts, poles and railway sleepers. It can be re-used directly or sent to recycling depots for cleaning, de-nailing and resizing or being turned into chipboard. All of the mixed wood we receive is processed at our recycling facility, sent for recycling and ultimately turned back into chipboard to be re-sold back into the construction industry.


Our plasterboard recycling processes can handle demolition waste, waste from rebuilds, production scrap in the form of virgin plasterboard offcuts, complete or broken board parts. What happens to the plasterboard?

Inerts (hardcore, soils & stones)

Inert materials such as concrete, brick, soils and stones make up the bulk of construction, demolition and excavation waste. Much of it can be segregated and re-used or recycled.
