We are a family-run business established by the great, great, great grandfather of the current owner, Grant Scott. We now trade as the leading local choice for waste disposal and skip hire in Tadworth but our business is steeped in history and tradition. Originally located in the Elephant and Castle area of London and trading under the name of W Hawkins LTD, much of the work completed by the early business was carried out on a ‘wait and load’ basis with the use of a horse and cart.
Hawkins & Scott provide a complete skip hire and waste management service, covering all major towns throughout the surrounding Surrey area including Leatherhead. Based in Lower Kingswood near Tadworth, we believe that reach is a vital component of any business. We make it a priority to give as many domestic, commercial and industrial clients the skip hire services they need when they want them, where they want them and how they want them.
That’s just one of the reasons why Hawkins & Scott give clients in Leatherhead a choice of traditional skips or our larger roll-on/roll off units which comes in sizes up to 40 cubic yards. For domestic clients, we can deliver directly to your home and arrange roadside permits if required. For commercial and industrial clients, our skip hire services can be tailored to include daily collections and deliveries.
The competitive nature of the waste management sector has made service delivery a key aspect in the success of skip hire companies based in Leatherhead and Surrey. By treating our clients as our friends and helping them at every possible level, Hawkins & Scott continue to grow through referrals and word-of-mouth recommendations.
In an age where more and more people have their own concerns over environmental care, our company plays a significant role in long-term sustainability by having a detailed recycling program. If you live in the Leatherhead area and have often wondered what happens to waste after you’ve used skip hire services, we’d like to reassure you that our own company is meeting all of its ethical duties and responsibilities.
We have some of the highest recycling rates in Leatherhead and Surrey. While it’s currently impossible to recycle 100% of the waste we receive, this remains our ultimate goal. Hawkins & Scott are continually increasing recycling rates by investing into advanced, innovative equipment that very few waste management companies have.
By returning as much waste product into the production system as we possibly can, less material is sent to landfill sites in and around Leatherhead. We believe that recycling is the best way to preserve local environments and ecosystems. Improving current success rates is our promise to preserve the planet for our children, grandchildren and future generations.
