Chorley Borough Council's update on changes to bin collections which are being implemented from the beginning of April is as follows. "The biggest focus is on Bank Holidays, which will now be included in the bin collection calendar as part of the changes being implemented across the borough to provide a better service for residents. Starting over Easter, if a household's collection falls on Good Friday or Easter Monday they can put their bins out as usual and they will be collected. Moving forward, collections will continue as normal across all Bank Holidays through the year, aside from the festive period. Although collection days will stay the same ahead of a review over the summer, collection times may differ slightly, so it is important residents have their bins out ready to be emptied by 7am. The move to Bank Holiday collections is part of a new contract, which is being taken on by FCC Environment, and includes a new fleet of collection lorries which are fitted with the latest technology, including 360-degree cameras. Residents can find their collection day by visiting chorley.gov.uk/bins. From 1 April, sign up will be live for the next 12-month cycle of garden waste collections, which begin on 1 May. Those who signed up last year via direct debit don't have do anything unless they want collections to stop. The one-off cost is £35 and can be paid via direct debit or online at chorley.gov.uk."
