Free blue wheelie bins are proving popular with residents in West Lancashire as the council moves ahead with its scheme to make it easier for people to recycle household waste.
The programme to provide blue bins instead of blue boxes for recycling plastic, cans and glass started in October 2013 and so far almost 28,000 households have received them.
The blue wheelie bins can only be used for plastic, cans and glass. There is no change to the collection arrangements for other materials.
Residents should continue to use blue bags for paper and card, clear bags for textiles, green wheelie bins for garden waste and grey wheelie bins for household waste that cannot be recycled.
Final deliveries of blue bins is due to be completed in May.
