What, how and where to recycle

You can recycle more from 1 October 2019

You can recycle more from 1 October 2019

From 1 October 2019 plastic pots, tubs and trays as well as plastic bottles will be accepted in household recycling bins across Lancashire. 

The additional plastics that can be recycled will be pots (eg yoghurt pots), tubs (eg margarine tubs) and trays (eg meat and vegetable trays). You can quickly check your item is recyclable by the recycling number stamped onto it. If you see the number 1, 2 or 5 inside the recycling triangle then simply give it a quick rinse and place it in your recycling bin.

Please ensure you rinse your plastics for recycling - this makes your plastic more valuable to the reprocessing companies used (90% of whom are in the UK).
