Last year, due to significant changes being made to the way the council collects household waste and recyclables, every household received a calendar through their door with the revised arrangements and collection dates up to the end of August 2022. In most cases people also saw the day of their collection change.
This year, the collection arrangements and days for all rounds remain unchanged so the new calendars are simply a continuation of the current ones.
Collections remain unaffected by bank holidays, except at Christmas and New Year when they will take place a day later. Reminders will be posted on the council’s social media channels and residents can check their calendar for more information.
To check upcoming collection dates, or to download a calendar, visit lancaster.gov.uk/bins.
For those without access to the internet, printed calendars can be picked up from customer service centres at Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls (Monday to Friday – 9am – 1pm).
More information on managing your household waste and what can and cannot be recycled via the council’s kerbside collection scheme (which now includes small household batteries), can be found at lancaster.gov.uk/recycling.
