A spokesperson for Preston City Council said: “The recycling collections trial is taking place across Preston, except in rural areas, and as a result some of the waste crew are walking up to 15 miles each day.

“As many residents are now recycling more items, the focus of the collection operation is shifting towards efficiencies.

“If made permanent, this change in arrangements and moving away from using the split-sides vehicles will save tax payers money in the longer term and allow continued growth of the service in the future.”
