Suspension of garden waste collections
Residents in the Lancaster district who have subscribed to the council’s garden waste collection service are being reminded that collections will be suspended over the winter months in what is traditionally the quietest time for gardeners.
There will be no collections of garden waste from Monday, December 16 until collections resume on Monday, February 10 2020. During this time, people are being encouraged to either compost the green waste which may accumulate over this period or dispose of it at a local recycling centre.
However, people who wish to subscribe to the garden waste collection service provided by the council from Monday, April 1 2020, will be able to do so from January at a cost of £40 per green bin. There will be no increase in fees for this collections service for 2020/21.
