More and more people are using Preston Council for skip hire – and you would struggle to find anywhere cheaper. The city council’s head of waste management, Duncan Coward, said demand was so high in the summer of 2015 that the local authority had to empty internally-used skips to cope. He says: “It’s a good service, it’s efficient and in the skip world, it’s very cost-effective.” The council has 90 skips at its Argyll Road depot, delivered and collected by Dave Lockhart (far right), who covers the South Ribble Home Helper area. He said: “I’ve been in this trade for nearly 20 years and there is nothing I don’t know about skips.” He makes around 14 trips every day and is always very punctual. Charges 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.
