Over the last 25 years Able Skip Hire Ltd has established itself as one of Lancashires foremost skip hire, recycling and waste management companies.
From our origins in the early 1980s, when we began operating with one petrol-engine Transit Van Skip Loader, and five rusty old mini skips, to our current fleet of modern, eco-friendly trucks and over 1000 skip containers. Our Vehicles and Skips have become a familiar sight on the highways and driveways of Lancashire.
The Directors of Able Skip Hire Ltd have over 70 years of combined experience in the Local Waste and Recycling industry, spanning two generations. The company remains an independent family owned business, allowing us to put the needs of our customers first, without interference from shareholders or parent companies.
Our continued success is down to Our policy of re-investment in our companies two main assets, its vehicles and equipment, and its workforce. The backbone of any successful waste recycling company is its fleet, and over the years we have always believed in improving and maintaining our vehicles to the highest standard possible. This enables us to reduce the downtime of our vehicles, which in turn provides the reliability and turnaround our customers depend upon. We now operate a modern fleet of DAF Trucks that are fitted with industry leading HARSH Telescopic Skip Loading Equipment, which allows us greater maneuverability in the siting of skips and also extra carrying capacity. This helps us to provide our Customers with a much faster and cost effective service than many of our competitors.
All Our Drivers & Recycling Staff have recieved extensive training and adhere to Driver CPC requirements and we are proud of Our Zero employee Accident status dating back to the 1980s.

Each year we collect approx 25000 tonnes of waste in the Central Lancashire Region and we take our responsibility to deal with this waste in a safe and environmentally friendly manner very seriously.

We see all of your waste materials as a vital resource and our proud to state that 0% of the materials that leave our site our consigned to landfill, everything is either transported for further recycling, or used to create energy from waste in RDF or biomass power stations, that feed into the National grid via a more carbon friendly fuel source than traditional fossil fuels.
