Four Weekly Collections Proposed For East Lancashire Councils

23-05-16(4)picCouncils in east Lancashire may have to collect residents’ residual waste every three-or-four weeks, following the end of a cost-sharing arrangement. 

A report recommends east Lancashire borough councils move to three-or-four weekly collection systems, or face losing up to £800,000 a year, according to reports by the Lancashire Telegraph.

An eight-year cost sharing arrangement between the councils is set to come to an end in April 2018, meaning the borough leaders must come up with a way of compensating.

A report by consultants for the county has said that reducing the frequency of residual waste collection would help do this.

The report recommends a four-weekly collections system for Burnley, Chorley and Hydburn.

It recommends a switch to a three-weekly collection system for Pendle and Rossendale.

The cost sharing arrangement is set to cease due to Government cuts to grants.
