Changes to garden waste services
Since 2004 Fylde Council has provided a green waste collection service that has been funded through an agreement with Lancashire County Council. Lancashire County Council has made the decision to no longer fund recycling services in district councils, as a result Fylde Council has had to take the difficult decision to introduce a charge for this service as permitted by the Controlled Waste Regulations 2012.
As with many other Local Authorities across the country, Fylde Council are no longer able to provide this non statutory service without introducing a charge.
In the first year the cost to subscribe to the service will be £25 per bin emptied on a fortnightly basis (1 June 2017 to 31 March 2018).

The service will be entirely optional and any households choosing not to subscribe will have the opportunity to home compost via Lancashire County Council’s composting scheme, further information on how to get started can be found at www.getcomposting.com
Alternatively, garden waste can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre, Saltcotes Road, Lytham.
