Paul Nicholas after speaking with his father, decided to set up Greenacres skip hire in 1989 with his wife, Wendy. Originally they set up the business in a shed in Dinas Cross, where they lived with 1 lorry and 10 skips. Paul was originally an agricultural engineer apprentice with JE Lawrence and decided to set up his own business.
We out-grew the shed and moved to our CURRENT premises.
Our waste transfer centre officially opens – Greenacres are now sorting through rubbish themselves on their own site.
Andrew, the youngest son joins the business.
The company goes from strength to strength seeing our team expand to 14 members. Paul felt it was so important to bring in local people within the Pembrokeshire area, as they are part of the community. We are a Family-run business, with Wendy as one of our directors as well as Auntie Non, famously known as ‘SKIP LADY’ joins the team along with other family members.
Auntie Non becomes a big hit and nicknamed ‘SKIP LADY’. We thought it would be a good idea to somehow show our customers how big or small our skips were before they ordered. Up stepped Non.
November 2018 saw Radio 1 presenter Greg James caught wind of ‘SKIP LADY’ from our website and a star was born!
Paul’s son Andrew takes the reigns from what the company is today. Andrew, with over 15 years experience, started working at Greenacres at 16 years old.
Skippy, Greenacres Skip Hire mascot got promoted to the office.
The summer has seen some big changes as we expanded our workshop where we maintain lorries on site.
Officially have our first full sized weigh bridge.
SKIPPING FOR SKIPPY Raises OVER £4000 for Cancer Research UK through Gift Aid.
Watch this space….
A charity that we continue to support and that is very close to all of our hearts here at Greenacres Skip Hire is Belle’s Story. Help to raise money for children with life-limiting illnesses by purchasing an item from their website.
‘Skipping for Skippy’ was set up after owner and founder of Greenacres Skip Hire, Paul Nicholas passed away after an acute battle with cancer.
The main goal was to raise money for Cancer Research UK by completing 100 skips per day throughout February.
What better way to take on the challenge and remember Paul than skipping in a skip?
If you could kindly donate, we would really appreciate it. All the money raised will go to Cancer Research UK.
