Lancashire County Council have plans that are currently in progress to re-open a number of our recycling centres on a limited basis. The council expect to do so as soon as central government, contractors and other partners finalise a date. When sites re-open, residents will be able to visit by appointment only. The booking system for appointments is not yet live and no appointments are available at this time.
This puts us behind our neighbours in Merseyside as Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority intends to reopen all Household Waste Recycling Centres on Monday 4th May.
Local residents have growing concern that the rubbish pileups are becoming difficult to manage and would welcome the recycling centre to reopen.
Unfortunately due to the current pandemic and the lack of recycling centre, fly tipping is on the rise in the area.
