A joint Colas/Wirral Council production: Sherlock in “Good riddance to bad rubbish”, eleven skips that cost £1,584
The invoice above (the thumbnail links to a larger image), for £144 for skips at Birkenhead Park in August 2012 is one in a series of eleven Colas invoices. The other ten are invoices for Warren Farm (April 2012, £144), Frankby Cemetery (May 2012, £144), Birkenhead Park (again) (May 2012, £144), Frankby Cemetery (another from May 2012, £144), Frankby Cemetery (again) (May 2012, £144), Highway Division (September 2012, £144), Frankby Cemetery (April 2012, £144), Ivy Farm (August 2012, £144), Birkenhead Park (September 2012, £144) and Love Lane allotments (September 2012, £144).
This raises the following questions that hopefully someone out there will answer by leaving a comment.
1. Is £144 a reasonable amount for a skip or if Wirral Council had used a local supplier would it have been better value for money?
2. Why were skips needed at these locations? Is it to clear up flytipping, building work or something else?
3. Where are the Love Lane allotments (anybody answering in Love Lane will find their comment is not approved)?
4. What and where is Ivy Farm?
5. What and where is Warren Farm?
