Skips will help the local area
Skips will be placed in Udston and Hillhouse this month as part of a new initiative.

Another two skips will be in Hillhouse at Fereneze Crescent and Dunkeld Place, on Thursday, October 25, between 8am-8pm (or until skips are full).
Skips will be securely locked overnight.
