Chance to sign up and pay online for garden waste collection service
RESIDENTS in West Lancashire wishing to use the borough council’s chargeable garden waste collection service from week beginning Monday, June 3 can sign up and pay online.
Those who are currently signed up to the service will have collections made up until the week ending Friday, May 31 but must subscribe again if they wish to continue having their brown bins emptied from June 3 for the following 12 months.
If they subscribe by Friday, May 17 they will be guaranteed no interruption to the service, which will continue on a fortnightly basis.
The service remains at the same cost of £30 per year for one brown bin to be emptied. Householders can also have additional brown bins emptied at a cost of £25 each per year. Additional bins can also be purchased at a cost of £25 if needed.
New customers who haven’t subscribed to the service before can sign up and purchase their brown bin online.
The council says the quickest and most convenient way to sign up and pay is via the website www.westlancs.gov.uk/gardenwaste.
Residents who do sign up must put their house number in the white square on the front of their brown bin to make sure it can be identified by collection staff and a valid subscription confirmed to minimise the risk of any missed bins.
Where bins are not clearly numbered and a valid subscription can’t be confirmed a warning label will be attached to the bin.
Those who decide not to sign up and pay will be able to dispose of garden waste at household waste recycling centres, or compost it.
