History of Widnes Skip & Reclaim

A Brief History

Widnes Skip & Reclaim Ltd has been established since 1999 but the Prescott family has been involved in the waste transport industry since 1930.

Fred Prescott started the business in the 1930’s with one tractor and one wagon and was the first in the Northwest UK to introduce the “Dempster Dumpster” waste container which can be described as the forefather of the modern day skip.
The business has been handed down three generations and has been involved in all aspects of road transportation and skip hire.

Under the management of Nick Prescott, the Company has diversified into recovery of waste. Our Recycling Center in Widnes takes in large quantities of commercial, industrial and household waste. We regularly achieve recovery rates of over 80%, meaning less than 20% of waste is disposed of to landfill
