Collecting your green waste

Whilst we will do our best to collect your bin on your normal scheduled day, we may sometimes experience difficulties completing collections of all green bins. If we haven’t been able to get to you please leave your bin out and we will return on another operational day to collect – usually within two working days. Customers on an assisted collection, please ensure there is access to the bin.

We will only be able to take green waste within bins from properties subscribed to the service, no additional green waste will be taken.

We would ask for your continued understanding during these challenging times. The crews have been extremely grateful for the positive messages of support they have been getting whilst making collections. 

Those who have signed up to the direct debit service will receive an email from our direct debit provider, Go Cardless advising them of payment mandate instructions.

Hint and tips: sharing a bin with a neighbour would halve the costs for you both.

Once subscribed

We will notify you when the stickers will be issued, this will be about normally three weeks before the collection period starts. Please attach the sticker to your bin as instructed so we know you have paid the subscription. Collections will continue on a fortnightly basis and collection dates remain the same. Please ensure you present your bin by 7am on your scheduled collection day.

New builds

If you have recently moved into a new build please contact us to find out about ordering new bins and subscribing to the green waste service.  

What goes in your green bin

Only garden waste must be placed in the green bin. Food waste should be disposed of in your grey bin or home composted.

Unwanted green bins

If you no longer require your green bin, you can request the removal of the bin by completing the online form. Only empty green bins will be removed and will be collected within five working days.

Alternative ways to dispose of your green waste

You can compost your green waste at home or take it to one of the household waste recycling centres operated by Lancashire County Council.
