About us

Canvey Skip Hire & Recycling Ltd incorporating Benfleet Skip Hire Ltd is owned by us - Husband and Wife team Stuart and Zoe Clark.

We pride ourselves in offering a professional friendly service with that personal touch that only a family run business can provide. We recycle as much of our waste as possible and are constantly looking to find new and dynamic ways to reduce waste and improve our business.

We have a fleet of 6 vehicles and over 250 skips and containers. Our main market is general household/public waste, though we do have some commercial waste contracts (including Essex Police, Salvation Army, RSPB, BUPA) on which we are looking to expand.

The Business was originally formed some 28 years ago, and we took the reigns in 2006.

Prior to this our backgrounds were in finance, waste disposal and recycling.

Zoe has worked very closely with Southend Borough Council and Cory Environmental in reducing waste from the community and has sat on the Steering Committee for Waste Recycling, she also holds the much coveted ‘WAMITAB’* qualification. She has been pivotal in the implementation of various successful recycling schemes at the Southend Borough Council civic amenity sites, including Rigid Plastics, Ceramics, Wood, Books, Mobile Phones and waste cooking oil.

Zoe's Father has owned a successful Waste Recycling and Skip Hire Business for 40 years and regularly consults on the business offering his valuable expertise.

* WAMITAB - Waste Management Industry Training & Advisory Board was established in 1989 with a remit to determine and advise on policy and standards of education, qualifications and training for all employees in the Waste Management Industry. WAMITAB is the awarding body for the waste management industry in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and joint awarding body, with SQA, for qualifications in Scotland.
