One for Lancaster residents

Did you know the arrangements for waste collection have changed?

This page on the Council website tells you more... here's the condensed version:

The black box with red lid will be used for newspapers, cardboard, junk mail, telephone directories and other printed paper.

The green boxes with yellow lids will be used for plastic bottles, glass, foil and cans - these items do not need to be separated.


  1. Just had the new bins delivered for Torbay area- a black lidded bucket for food and two black boxes with net covers for paper and glass. We already have a green bin for plastic bottles and a large wheelie bin for other non recyclable rubbish. Glad I'm moving!

  2. They do seem to make things complicated don't they.
