Leicester is a city in the Leicestershire county. Because the City of Leicester is a unitary authority, it administers waste management separately from the other 7 districts in Leicestershire (Charnwood, Melton, Harborough, Oadby and Wigston, Blaby, Hinckley and Bosworth, and North West Leicestershire) which united in the Leicestershire Waste Partnership. Visit our Leicestershire skip hire page for more information.
