Lancashire’s recycling centres will be given a boost next week, although residents are still being urged to only make a trip to the tip if essential.

The change was introduced last year as a means to ensure social distancing and reduce the spread of coronavirus by preventing residents mixing with each other during their trip.

A decision has now been made to relax the rule, as restrictions across Lancashire and the rest of the country ease in line with the government’s roadmap.

It comes just in time for the Easter period, when demand is expected to be high.

Residents are asked to only visit their recycling centres if it is essential, and to hold off attending if possible.

You must be able to lift and dispose of the waste yourself or with someone accompanying you to the centre. Staff will not be able to help you with large or bulky items due to social distancing.
Vans, hire vans and trailers (including single axle trailers) must have an appointment. Only cars will be allowed access to the recycling centres without an appointment
People must not visit if they have any symptoms of coronavirus or should be self-isolating.
