Lancashire County Council operates Recycling Centres where householders can recycle their rubbish.
Please be aware that the opening hours of the recycling centres changes depending on the time of year.
The recycling centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day.
The recycling centres operate an access policy and permit scheme which restricts use of the sites by certain large vehicles and trailers. This policy helps to increase safety and reduce congestion at the sites. Please also remember that the recycling centres do not accept trade waste of any description.
You can apply for a permit online. Please note that first time users will need to register before they can complete their application.
Find your nearest Recycling Centre
All of the recycling centres recycle or re-use an extensive range of materials (See More Details).
We also have dedicated staff on hand to help you recycle your rubbish. These staff are easily identifiable in their bright uniforms that carry our "Here to help" logo. They are available to assist you with all aspects of your visit to a recycling centre whether it is help with recycling that you require, a hand to unload your car or just help to carry a heavy item.
We've been working hard to build you a bigger and better recycling centre at Farington, and the site is now fully open to the public, and accepting a full range of waste recycling.
For more information please go to the Farington recycling centre webpage.
