  1. This is a fantastic idea that has come to fruition, and It shows the willing on of community.
    .The skips will make a massive dent in helping clear unwanted items that may well otherwise have been difficult to dispose of.
    I’m sure most people appreciate the areas they live in.

  2. Why should Jigsaw supply the skips for free it’s not there rubbish,it’s up to the people who live in the area to keep it tidy.
