Waste disposal in Preston

Waste disposal in Preston

After watching various documentaries on the TV, increasingly more of us are becoming alarmed about waste and the effect it’s having on our environment. But rest assured, Chorley Skips can help.

Specialising in local skip hire, Chorley Skips also provide skip hire in Preston to accommodate the waste disposal needs of more customers.

Preston is the seat of Lancashire County Council and home to the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and Preston North End F.C who were the first English football champions. With a small proportion of green belt land, Preston is a town that encourages residents and businesses to assist in safeguarding the countryside, preserving the historic town and recycling as much as possible.

Landfill – the problems

There are several reasons why we aim to reduce the amount of waste that’s sent to landfill, one of these being that landfills won’t last forever. Once full, it cannot be used again and neither can the materials that are compacted and buried.

Renowned for producing harmful greenhouses gases, like carbon dioxide and methane, landfill sites pose environmental hazards for residents and businesses in Preston. Methane is flammable and increases the risk of fires and explosions.

Landfills can also cause harm to wildlife as leachate – a polluting liquid run-off – gets into streams and rivers.

What can we do?

Preston has the lowest household waste reuse, recycle and compost rate of all 14 Lancashire authorities (29.8%), and to improve this, there needs to be less waste dumped at the landfill site and more recycled or reused.

Like most local councils, the Preston council provide food waste, paper, plastic and glass recycling collections. These materials are sorted into what can be recycled, burnt to generate electricity and sent to landfill.

If you’re having a clear-out, undertaking DIY work or simply looking for somewhere to throw excess building materials, why not take advantage of our skip hire Preston services? Our skips allow you to remove waste as soon as it’s generated – keeping your site safe and tidy.
