Residents are being urged to remember recyclable items which are often thrown out in waste bins.

Lancashire County Council wants people to think about what else they could be recycling by checking district council websites.

County Coun Janice Hanson, cabinet member for public protection and waste at the authority, said: “People in Lancashire have an excellent track record for recycling, but there’s always more you can do.

“Recycling is not just for the kitchen, there is so much more you can recycle upstairs, downstairs, outside and in the garage. Items such as bleach bottles, toilet roll tubes and deodorant cans are often forgotten, but can all go in your recycling bin.

“Remember that unless you recycle it, it can’t go on to become something else. For example, the strips being used by England during the World Cup are made up from an average of 18 recycled bottles each.”
