Great Harwood residents press the case for saving their Recycling Centre

Great Harwood residents have made their views known to the County Council in significant numbers. A huge 5,252 objections were received by County, almost three times as many as were received for Garstang and over a 25x greater than Bacup.

The table below highlights the passsion of Great Harwood residents to save their recycling centre.

I have taken this up on their behalf in Parliament, supported the grassroots campaign and wrote to Lancashire County Council. MP's in the other areas who have remained silent on closures.

County Councillor Ciaran Wells and Councillor Gareth Molyneux of Great Harwood have worked with Great Harwood residents and Great Harwood Community Action Group to ensure that local views were represented in the County Hall consultation.
