Waste paper and cardboard will be collected on the rearranged refuse collection dates, so don’t forget to recycle your Christmas wrap, cards and packaging.

Christmas trees should be chopped up and placed inside green bins, or if you are not on the green wheeled bin service tied up and left with burgundy bins or lilac sacks on green waste collection week. They can also be taken to the household waste recycling centres at Henthorn, Clitheroe, or Chapel Hill, Longridge.
