Skip hire, skips, Preston

More and more people are using Preston Council for skip hire – and you’d struggle to find anywhere cheaper.

The man in charge of our bins, Duncan Coward (left), Head of Waste Management, said demand was so high in summer that the council had to empty internally used skips to cope.

He added: “It’s a good service, it’s efficient and in the skip world, it’s very cost-effective.”

The council has 90 skips – up 20 from last year – at its Argyll Road depot, delivered and collected by cheerful Dave Lockhart (right).

“I’ve been in this for nearly 20 years and there’s nothing I don’t know about skips,” says Dave, 53, who makes around 14 trips every day “And I don’t do late!”

Charges, at january 1, 2017, are £175 for a builder’s eight-ton skip, and £110 for a smaller, four-ton midi-skip, including VAT. They are used for anything from building waste to house clearances – and the service is Monday to Saturday. Skips can be kept up to five days, then charges start to rise.

The council also offers keenly priced commercial wheelie bin collection and bulky waste collection for items like computers, fridges, TVs or tyres. If calling, please quote PCC 1.
