The blue recycling boxes will be phased out over the next four years in favour of new bins

The city council has reminded residents there is no change to bin collections over the Easter period.


All bins and recycling containers should be put out by 7am on the day of normal collection.

Preston City Council is also urging residents to ensure they recycle their Easter egg packaging.

Cabinet member for community and environment, Councillor Robert Boswell, said: “Easter is a time of year when people buy more food, presents such as eggs and chocolate, and send cards, so it’s a great time to boost your recycling efforts.

“Preston residents already recycle approximately 38% of their waste, but there is always more that can be done.


“The council’s website is full of tips and advice on how to recycle more effectively at home.”

In terms of what can be recycled, foil egg packaging can go in the yellow lidded recycling container and paper/cardboard into the red lidded container.

The brown bin handles all cooked and uncooked food waste.

To check your waste collection dates or for recycling queries visit the council website.
