Changes to opening hours and days at Household Waste Recycling Centres
On 16 May, Cabinet agreed proposals to change opening hours and days at Household Waste Recycling Centres across Lancashire. The changes are due to be implemented from 1 October 2019.
The main changes are:
- The opening hours of all recycling centres will change to 9am – 5pm all year round.
- All recycling centres will open on Bank Holidays even if a site's normal closure day is Monday.
- Barnoldswick, Burscough, Carnforth, Clitheroe, Haslingden and Longridge centres will close two days during the week excluding Friday, as this is often the busiest weekday. Skelmersdale recycling centre will remain open seven days a week because it receives more waste than the other six.
