GBN has been shortlisted for Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year!
GBN Services are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Awards for Excellence in Recycling & Waste Management for the Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year category.
In April 2016, GBN Services officially opened it’s brand new Materials Recovery Facility in Cody Dock, East London. Our MRF has been specially designed to cater for the commercial and industrial sectors, with a focus on processing construction waste. On top of this, we continue to provide a professional skip hire service (including RORO’s and waste clearance/wait and load) to London and the surrounding areas, as well as providing support to businesses across the UK using our national network of vetted skip hire suppliers.
GBN has come on leaps and bounds this last year, taking full advantage of the capabilities of the new MRF, meaning almost 100% (99.8%) of construction waste processed at our facility can be diverted from landfill. We’ve even started opening up the site to local junk vans and skip trucks, so they have somewhere to tip in the area.

We are honoured to be nominated alongside some really great businesses this year. Other finalists include entrepreneurs, commercial organisations, local authorities, third sector groups and individual recycling champions with the winners announced at the awards ceremony on 18 May at the five-star Landmark Hotel in London.
Speaking ahead of this year’s event, Jacob Hayler, Executive Director at the Environmental Services Association and also part of the expert judging panel, said,
“Judging this year’s Awards for Excellence was a real honour and a pleasure. There were so many strong entries, and it was exciting to see the amount of energy and enthusiasm out there devoted to improving recycling and making the most of our resources.”
