No. Prices are the same for all residents of Preston.
Skips can be left either on private property (e.g. a driveway) or on the road/public highway. Skips left on the road will need a permit issued by Lancashire County Council.
Yes. We will provide the permit for you at no extra charge.
If a permit is needed to leave the skip on the road, we will let you know when making the booking.
It is possible depending on the type of waste, weight of the skip and what your driveway is made from. We recommend that plywood sheets are placed on the drive to help stop any scuffing on lifting the skip. Your driver will advise if he feels there would be a problem with the surface of the drive. However the responsibility remains with the hirer.
You can mix the type of waste that goes in our skips. e.g. garden waste and builders waste. For waste we don't accept see skip hire in Preston and our terms and conditions.
It is the responsibility of the hirer to make sure that the skip is not used by others. If waste is put in your skip it is your responsibility to either return it responsibly or get rid of it.
No skip should be filled above the fill line. Greedy boards must not be used. If a skip has too much waste in it, you will be instructed to remove the extra waste and it will not be collected. Depending on the amount of extra waste and the amount of time the skip is on site for you may need to pay extra charges.
There are two different types of skip, covered and open.
Open skips are the most commonly used. Occasionally, some permits will require the skip to be covered.
Covered skips protect from the weather, can stop others from using and abusing the skip and may be needed for some permits (this is based on location).
GOV.UK's - Environment Agency describe hazardous waste as waste that is dangerous or potentially harmful to our health or the environment.
Hazardous wastes can be liquids, solids, gases, or sludges. They can also be commercial products, like cleaning fluids or pesticides, or the result of manufacturing processes. We do not accept any hazardous waste in our skips.
Approximately 13ft/4m due to the arms of the vehicle used to move the skip.
In some cases it may be possible.
No, not without paying an extra charge.
It is the responsibility of the hirer to make sure access is available to deliver and collect the skip.
Where possible we will try our best to meet most delivery or collection requests. However this is not always possible.
If a payment is made before delivery and the skip location is clear there is no need for you to be at the property for delivery.
There are no additional charges when you hire a skip with us.
