Welcome to A & M Smith Recycling Services

Formed in 1994 by Scott and Kerry Smith, A & M Smith Recycling Services provide a local skip hire service in the Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City area, for small builders and the general public.

Our services include a roll on off vehicle and containers in order to service the needs of larger building contractors, as well as commercial and industrial waste producers.

We have a large fleet of vehicles and one of Scotland’s most up-to-date, state-of-the-art waste sorting systems, based at our Aberdeen Recycling and Waste Management Centre.

Opening our second recycling centre based at Peterhead in 2012, enabled our services to be expanded across all of Aberdeenshire. Both recycling centres and all our waste management operations are ISO-14001 registered.

Quick Tip & Away

A & M Smith Recycling Services have recently upgraded our waste management and recycling centre based at Bankhead Portlethen Aberdeen.

We have constructed a custom built van unloading bay, this designated bay enables our local tradesman to safely dismount and unload their vehicle without having to queue and keeps them safely away from HGVs and heavy plant machinery.

Several of our local trade customers have praised this (quick empty and away bay)

Our Recycling Centres

Portlethen Recycling and Waste Centre

In March 2012 we opened the doors of our second state of the art Non Hazardous solid waste recycling facility at Peterhead which means we can offer our superior service across more of the North of Scotland.
