Council voices concerns over Lancaster street litter
Lancaster City Council is reminding residents and businesses in the city centre that they are encouraged to leave waste out in bags to coincide with collections.
After concerns over waste left in Geroge Street last Thursday - some of it apparently left out overnight and raided by animals - the Council told virtual-lancaster trade waste is collected in the city centre twice per day Monday to Saturday.
"We have instructed collection crews to keep an eye on the situation in this area," a spokesperson told us, "and if necessary gather evidence as to who the waste might belong to in order to prevent a similar unsightly occurrence happening again in the city centre."
