Wyre Council is to start removing surplus grey bins from homes during routine bin collections following an amnesty last month.
From the October 22, additional bins will be removed from households where the council does not have records of them needing extra capacity.
Every home in Wyre is issued with one standard grey bin, however there has been an increase in the number of people putting out two or more on collection day.
Filling more grey bins instead of recycling means that more waste is going to landfill.
The council says that extra bins take more time to collect and mean additional trips to the tip, which cost it money.
