There are many more recycling centres throughout the Preston, Leyland and Chorley areas of Lancashire but these are some of the main ones that have the capacity of handling large amounts of waste.
However, many people opt to hire a skip to be delivered to their home for a variety of reasons. It may be due to the size and quantity of waste being thrown away or that that multiple trips to and from their local recycling centre would make the hire of a skip more cost effective.
Whatever your requirements we all need to be recycling conscious in order to reduce the amount of waste being sent to land fill sites.
