The Garstang Community Recycling and Re-use Centre will remain closed until further notice.
The waste types that we take at Garstang are mainly those which are already collected by the district council.
Our advice to residents is that doorstep collections are the best way to manage their waste and they should only visit a recycling centre if their rubbish cannot be managed through collections.
LCC do not consider the Garstang facility an essential service, and given the high resource demands across the county council as a result of the pandemic, the resource that would be required to operate the facility is more efficiently used elsewhere. We advise customers to utilise their doorstep collections or use an alternative recycling centre such as Longridge where necessary.
