About Us

A family Skip Hire company proudly serving the people and businesses of West Lothian, Edinburgh and Falkirk for over 30 years.

About Buchanan Skip Hire

Founded in 1987, Buchanan Skip Hire is proud to have developed from a small family business into one of West Lothian’s largest skip hire and recycling companies. We supply the full range of skips from 2yd mini right up to 40yd Roll on Roll Off containers. Most importantly, our customers include both residential customers and businesses, throughout West Lothian, Edinburgh and Falkirk.

Speedy, Reliable Service

We receive over 32,000 tonnes of materials annually. Of this, we achieve over 98% diversion from landfill. As a result, our fully SEPA licensed Waste Transfer Station is a market leader for segregating and recycling waste. On top of this, we have a fleet of twenty one skip lorries and our own fleet support vehicle. This means we can offer unbeatable service to meet your needs. We are happy to provide early morning deliveries and uplift same day. We are even open on Saturdays.

Buchanan Skip Hire is not only fully SEPA licensed, but also UKAS accredited for both ISO:9001 and ISO:14001. This highlights our commitment to continuous improvement. Copies of our Waste Carriers Licence, Waste Management Licence, ISO certificates and WAMITAB certificates are available on request.


Our key strength which sets us apart from our competitors is that we have the best of both worlds – small enough that we are able to build close working relationships with our local customers and large enough to ensure that our high level of service is never impacted. As a family business, at the end of the day, our name is our reputation.
