Council prepares for Wednesday's strike

Lancaster City Council is re-arranging waste and recycling collection services arrangements for Wednesday, when a number of public sector unions nationally are taking strike action over proposed pension reforms.


The industrial action will  have an impact on most Lancaster City Council services, but arrangements are in place to ensure emergency services are maintained.

Lancaster City Council has announced arrangements for waste collection as a result of this planned industrial action.

Those customers who would normally have their refuse and recycling collected on that Wednesday will receive a leaflet, which will be posted through their letterbox, detailing alternative arrangements that have been put in place.

Grey wheelie bins and recycling boxes will not be emptied on 30th November and residents should not leave them out for collection on this day.

The next collection from grey bins and recycling boxes will be on Wednesday 14th December 2011.  Additional side waste which has been accrued as a result of grey bins not being collected can be placed alongside grey bins for collection on this day.

Green bins and food waste caddies will also not be collected on Wednesday, but arrangements are in place to collect them the next day, Thursday 1st December.
