2. Recycling bring site to be removed from Poulton

Recycling banks are to be removed from Poulton's Hardhorn car park following months of abuse.

General waste and non-recyclable materials are regularly deposited in the containers, which means they are rejected at the recycling plant and have to be disposed of as landfill.

Up to 20 bin bags of rubbish are also dumped in front of the banks on a near-daily basis.

Councillor Peter Murphy, Cabinet member with responsibility for waste, said: "This is a problem that is caused by an irresponsible few, but because it shows no sign of letting up, the council can no longer justify the resources needed to deal with it every day.

"Residents shouldn't be losing out because all the materials accepted at the recycling banks can be included in their normal refuse collection at home."

Additional facilities can be found at the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Jameson Road, Fleetwood.
