Food waste recycling

The food waste recycling scheme has now ended.

Food waste in the Lancaster district can no longer be collected and taken away for recycling following a decision made by Lancashire County Council to change the way that garden waste is composted.

This means that residents who have been recycling food waste in their green bins along with their garden waste, or putting it out for collection in the specially provided caddy, should either put their food waste in their grey bins or compost it at home.

Food waste placed in your grey wheeled bin does not need to be kept separate and should be bagged along with your general non-recyclable waste.
