Adult day care centres will be closed and householders charged to have their green bins collected as councils are forced to slash their budgets.
Seven day centres across Lincolnshire are likely to shut by April, meaning disabled adults will have to travel elsewhere for help and support. The county council claims falling user numbers have made the sites "unviable" as it looks to balance the books.
Meanwhile, a "catastrophic" £3 million drop in income at the City of Lincoln Council means a raft of reductions are planned for its services.
Proposed cost-cutting measures include:
- Charging £25 a year for garden waste collections.
- Axing the three urban rangers, the commons warden and the sports development team.
- Pulling the £50,000 Walk and Ride bus subsidy.
- Reducing Drill Hall grant support by £75,000, spread over four to five years.
- Cutting the £1,000 a year per councillor ward budget for local good causes.
Council leader Ric Metcalfe said there would be even more cuts to come in the near future.
"We have already saved £4.5 million since 2008 and what we are now proposing represents £1 million of our year one savings," he said.
"But I'm afraid there will be more to come in subsequent years and this will include CCTV, which costs us £300,000 a year."
