Skips provided for Blackburn and Darwen residents
3:46pm Thursday 16th January 2014 in News
THREE areas of Blackburn and Darwen will have skips provided by the council for residents to dispose of bulky rubbish on Saturday.
The locations are:
The Barlow Institute, Edgworth from 9am to 10 am;
Meadowhead Close, Blackburn from 9am to 10 am; and
Scotland Bank Terrace, Blackburn from 10.45am to 11.45am.
It is part of a scheme begun last month to provide free skips around the borough on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
Council environment boss Jim Smith said “These events have been successful and I am pleased the borough can provide this service.
“Fly-tipping, littering and illegal dumping are a real concern and I am pleased we can tackle this irresponsible behaviour.
“The skips are staffed by council workers and when full will be taken away.”
