As the Easter weekend draws to a close, we are still trying to figure out which supermarkets are open, what time they are open and when everything is back to normal.
For many of us in Lancashire, Monday is bin collection day, but with Monday (April 18) being a bank holiday – Easter Monday, no less – some of us are wondering if our waste will actually be taken away tomorrow or not.
The good news is that there aren’t any drastic changes planned for many areas of the county tomorrow, so if you’re in doubt and your usual garbage collection day is a Monday, you should take out your trash (usually advice alternates recycling and general waste week after week). Unfortunately some areas of Lancashire do not have a Monday bin collection scheduled as usual, and in some cases this may mean you have missed it altogether for that week. Check your council’s website for details on the next collection.
