Outcome of the public consultation on changes to Household Waste Recycling Centres

In December 2018 Cabinet agreed to consult on proposals to change opening hours and days at Household Waste Recycling Centres across Lancashire.


The outcome of the consultation and responses to issues raised are contained in this report. Following consideration of the consultation responses, it is recommended that the changes proposed are implemented with the exception that Skelmersdale recycling centre remains open seven days a week.


In addition, all recycling centres should open on Bank Holidays even if a facility's normal closure day is Monday.
