Communal bins

For flats in some areas of the borough, communal bins operate to make it easier for residents to manage their household waste and to help keep communal areas clean, tidy and safe.  

Grey communal bins

Communal grey bins are for general household waste that can’t be recycled. 

Blue communal bins

Blue bins are for glass bottles, plastic bottles, cans, tins, aerosols, aluminium foil and trays OR cardboard and paper. The bins will be clearly labelled to make it easier for residents.

When will bins be emptied?

You can find your collection day by entering your postcode into the 'Your West Lancs' area of the page.

What do I need to do on collection day?

You do not need to do anything. Our Refuse and Recycling team will empty the bins from their location.

If you wish to report a communal bin issue, the quickest and easiest way is to report a refuse and recycling matter online.
