bin collection

Interested in our Preston waste collection?

What can I put in my bin or skip?

With our Preston waste management services, we take care of everything from everyday trash to mixed recyclables like glass and food. Our smaller 240-litre bin handles both, while our larger 660 and 1100-litre bins are great for regular waste and materials like cardboard.

When it comes to skips, you can toss in pretty much anything you’d put in your regular bin – just steer clear of hazardous waste like batteries and fuel.

What happens to my commercial waste?

If you use our Preston waste collection service, we will take your waste to our 17-acre recycling facility, where we sort it into recyclable and non-recyclable waste.

We take plastic pollution and climate change seriously at J Dickinson, so are committed to recycling as many materials as possible to limit the amount of waste going into landfill.

What responsibility do businesses have for waste management in Preston?

Whether you’re renting a skip or have a commercial bin in Preston, you have a responsibility to manage your waste in an eco-friendly way.

Messy waste management, like collection, sorting, and disposal, can lead to fly-tipping or needless landfilling. Not only is this bad for the planet, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and fueling climate change, it can also damage your business reputation.

That’s where J Dickinson & Sons come in – with our commercial waste collection in Preston, you can be sure your waste is disposed of in the right way.

What is hazardous waste?

Hazardous waste is waste that poses a risk to public health and the environment. It can be liquids, solids, or gases, which can be found in many different places, such as businesses, homes, and schools. It can pollute the air, water, and soil, and also cause health problems, which is why it is important to dispose of hazardous waste properly.

Some common examples of hazardous waste include:

  • Solvents
  • Paints
  • Aerosols
  • Batteries
  • Medical waste

How do I get rid of hazardous waste?

It’s important NOT to dispose of hazardous waste on your own, as this can create risks for both yourself and those around you. If you need to dispose of materials that are considered hazardous, please reach out to a company that specialises in hazardous waste removal. They have the expertise and equipment necessary to handle these materials safely and properly, while ensuring the correct dispoal.

How long can you hire a skip for?

For our domestic customers, we offer skip hire for a period of up to 14 days from the day of delivery.

As one of our account customers, you can hire a skip for 5 weeks from the day of delivery. If your business is interested in setting up an account with us, please reach out to us at 01204 696446 – our team will be happy to arrange this for you.

What happens to skip waste after collection?

After we collect your skip, your waste is transported to our dedicated 17-acre recycling and disposal facility, where we meticulously sort and recycle all materials. Thanks to our firm commitment in aiming to recycle 100% of waste brought to site, and with the opening of our state-of-the-art recycling plant in early 2023, we’re now able to process more efficiently, making our recycling services even more effective and environmentally friendly.
