New Refuse and Recycling Calendars

John Freeman
Lancaster City Council has begun delivering new refuse and recycling calendars to households throughout May and June.

For some residents the calendars include important changes to which bin is collected on which week, so it is wise to keep hold of your new calendar as these changes may affect you.

Calendars are also available to view online at

Don’t forget that all plastic bottles and all glass bottles, jars, and containers can be recycled.

To find out what you can put in your recycling boxes visit

Remember to call Bulky Matters if you have any larger items you no longer need including furniture, fridges and other domestic appliances, TVs and much more.

For a small fee your items will be collected from inside your home at a time to suit you. All items collected are either re-used or recycled, providing training opportunities and helping local disadvantaged people furnish their homes.

To book a collection call Customer Services on 01524 582491.
