About Us

CSH Environmental was born in 1981 as Colchester Mini Skips after lorry driver Terry Slade came up with the idea of hiring out skips while he was away driving and picking them up again on his return.

Colchester Mini Skips became Colchester Skip Hire in 1988 and eventually CSH Environmental in 2013. That final change of name reflected the changing nature of our business as waste management became more and more about recycling rather than disposal.

Today, we operate East Anglia’s biggest waste recycling facility, which is able to process ever more different products, and we export to countries around the world where our waste is turned into new products. Our motto is ‘Recycling for the Future’ and we are proud to be able to regularly divert over 99% of the waste we collect away from landfill, whether that’s for recycling or for energy from waste.

The range of services we can offer commercial and domestic clients across the Colchester, Ipswich and Chelmsford regions of Essex and Suffolk includes, but is not limited to:

  • Trade Waste – commercial waste management for a range of sectors with services including wheelie bin and eurobin hire, rear end loader containers, food waste and a wide range of recycling
  • Skip Hire – from small 2 yard skips to massive 40 yard roll on roll off skips, covering everything from household clearance to construction site waste
  • Waste Management – for all kinds of commercial and industrial applications, including asbestos removal and other hazardous waste
  • Waste Collection – from domestic bulky waste and household clearance to fly tipping clearance and office clearance

Over 40 years after Terry Slade had an idea about skips, CSH Environmental is still a family firm and today is a local leader in the effective management of waste. Our efforts have even been recognised by industry organisations such as the Chartered Institution of Waste Management, the 2019 BUILD Recycling & Waste Management Awards and as a finalist in the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management 2020.

Whether CSH Environmental sounds like the sort of business partner you can trust to effectively manage your commercial waste, or you just want to hire a skip from someone you know will deal with your domestic waste in a responsible fashion, contact us today.

Supporting a range of business types, we aim to recycle 100% of your waste
