The Garden Waste Collection Service is really popular across West Lancashire and, although not an essential service for residents during a pandemic, the Council is offering a continued service through online subscriptions for 2020/21.
Councillor Kevin Wilkie, whose Cabinet responsibilities include waste management, said: "We have listened to our subscribers and understand that our residents really want us to continue the garden waste collection service despite the current challenges.
"By subscribing online residents are really helping as our customer service team will still be available to support those who are most vulnerable to the virus and need extra help at this time. I am really pleased that we have a way of continuing the service and I know residents who do not currently subscribe online will find the sign up quick and easy to do."
Subscriptions for the service start again from 11 May when residents can sign up and pay through their self-service account on the Council website www.westlancs.gov.uk/gardenwaste. You can only do this online, please do not call or send payments in to the Council.
The collection period customers will be subscribing for is 1 June 2020–31 May 2021. The cost of subscribing is £30 for the 4th year running which offers residents of the Borough a competitively priced service.
