Residents urged to take pride in their communities

A leading Burnley councillor has urged residents across the borough to take more pride in their communities in 2020.

Councillor Cosima Towneley said Burnley Council could only effectively tackle the problem of flytipping with the help and support of local people.

Burnley residents encouraged to recycle this Christmas

Burnley Council is urging residents to make it a cracker of a Christmas when it comes to recycling.

With Christmas just around the corner it’s more important than ever for people to start thinking about recycling over the festive period. By doing this people can help protect the environment and cut down on the amount of waste going into their general household waste bin, preventing it from filling up too quickly.

New improved white recycling sacks are on their way

New, improved white sacks for recycling paper and card are on their way to thousands of homes across Burnley borough.

The new sacks are being introduced as part of wider improvements to the way Burnley Council collects recyclable materials from homes in the borough.

In October the council introduced new ways of collecting recycling – with around half the borough moving to a wheelie bin system and the other half continuing with a blue box (for glass, cans and plastic) and white sack (paper and card) service.

Just over £250,000 would be invested in extending Haddon House care home to provide a short break unit for adults with learning and physical disabilities, while £56,622 would be used to provide a sensory room and Changing Places facility in Burnley town centre.
