Burnley Council is considering changing the way it collects recyclable materials across the borough.
It follows an extensive review of the borough’s waste collection service in light of issues raised by local people.
Any changes would apply only to recyclable materials; there are no proposals to alter the fortnightly general (claret bin) waste collection. Garden waste collections, for those subscribing to the service, would also remain unchanged.
Currently recyclable materials such as paper, glass, cans and plastics are collected every fortnight in sacks and boxes.
