We provide business waste collection services for local businesses in Preston.
Our service is very flexible. You can request collections up to six times a week for different types of waste.
Waste collections will take place between 7am - 3pm.
Waste will be collected from an agreed pick up point. Where possible, pick up points will be tailored to meet your needs.
Please note: we will only pick up rubbish inside the container. Any extra rubbish left around the container will not be collected.
You can choose to have your waste collected in either containers or pre-paid sacks.
Our containers range from the standard two wheeled bins up to the larger four wheeled metal euro bins which come in a variety of sizes. Lockable lids are provided as a standard.
Price is based on container size and the number of containers and/or collections required.
We will contact you to discuss the service and price once your application has been submitted.
