Make sure you’re registered to vote

As part of Burnley Council’s annual voter registration canvass, households in Burnley borough will soon be receiving a form asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.

The aim of the Household Enquiry Form (HEF) is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

People have to be on the electoral register in order to be able to vote in elections.

Proposed changes to the way residents collect recyclable rubbish

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.
