Recycling (Blue Sacks)

Fylde Borough Council provides a trade waste recycling service for paper and cardboard using pre-paid blue sacks.

You must book before 3pm on a Wednesday to ensure your sacks are collected on Thursday.

How does the scheme operate?

  • Blue sacks can be purchased in quantities of 50 and the cost includes the collection and recycling process.
  • The cost of 50 sacks is £45.80.
  • Sacks can be purchased online using the tiles below. The sacks must be collected from the Town Hall, St Anne’s Road West.
  • Blue recycling sacks are collected every Thursday. For sacks to be collected the same week a collection must be booked by 3pm on the Wednesday.
  • Please only arrange your blue sack collections once you have 2 or more sacks. This will assist us in maximising vehicle efficiency, reducing vehicle movements to the area and help minimise carbon emissions.
  • Blue sacks should be placed at the front of your premises by 9am on collection day. Please ensure that the blue sacks do not cause an obstruction.

Waste disposal costs can be up to 5% of your company’s annual turnover, so more and more businesses are finding it pays to look at sustainable ways of dealing with waste. Recycling your waste will lower your disposal costs; these savings will become more significant as the cost of waste disposal to landfill continues to rise.

Fylde’s households now have access to recycling facilities and you can promote a positive and responsible image to your customers by implementing recycling practices for your business helping to position your business ahead of competitors, as a leader in sustainable business practice

Since 2011 there are new obligations on businesses to apply the waste hierarchy to decisions on waste management options when waste is transferred and to declare on transfer notes that this has been done.
