Cleaner, Greener, Safer

Our Town visiting Local AreaOur Town is back bigger and better for 2024; Our Town, Cleaner, Greener, Safer.

With the usual targeted environmental and Streetscene works, Our Town Four will bring together the council, blue light services, community groups, volunteers, businesses and more to deliver a cleaner, greener and safer Wigan borough.  

Our Town will visit every ward in Wigan borough between May 2024 to February 2025.

There will also be a waste amnesty in every ward, with the locations added to this webpage in advance.

Our Town Four is being funded by part of the borough’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund allocation.


Our Town Four Waste Amnesties

During the Our Town visit in each ward, the council will host a waste amnesty.

Residents will be able to come and drop off similar items to those accepted at our Household Waste Recycling Centres, such as old and worn furniture, old toys, garden furniture, appliances and white goods, excess household waste, and more all for free.
