Following on-going mis-use of the waste facility at Burscough we have temporarily closed the waste facility while we explore ways to ensure the waste store is protected from the mis-use, the local team will be working hard today to clear away all the fly tipping and hazardous waste that has been dumped in the store and will then lock the stores off, putting it out of use for a temporary period of time. 

Although this waste facility is closed there is another waste facility a short sail away at Moss bridge which can be used to dispose of boaters waste, we’ll be monitoring this site to ensure it can accommodate the extra waste that would otherwise have been deposited at Burscough. 

Please bear with us while we look for solutions to the fly tipping issues at this location
