STRIKES over proposed pension reforms will affect bin collections on Wednesday, November 30.

Those customers who would normally have their refuse and recycling collected on that Wednesday will receive a leaflet, which will be posted through their letterbox, detailing alternative arrangements that have been put in place.

Grey wheelie bins and recycling boxes will not be emptied on November 30 and residents should not leave them out for collection on this day.

The next collection from grey bins and recycling boxes will be on Wednesday, December 14. Additional side waste which has been accrued as a result of grey bins not being collected can be placed alongside grey bins for collection on this day.

Green bins and food waste caddies will not be collected on Wednesday, November 30. Arrangements are in place to collect them the next day, Thursday, December 1.

The industrial action will also have an impact on other Lancaster City Council services.
