From April, Fylde Borough Council will work in partnership with Wyre Borough Council to help it meet its recycling targets.
When the local authority recycling league table was released in January, Fylde had progressed further than any other council in England, moving from 245th to 13th place.
It jumped by 19% to reach a total recycling and composting rate of 30%, smashing its 2003/4 target of 14%.
Wyre council, on the other hand, despite exceeding its target and having a recycling rate of 25%, experienced a 9% fall in recycling levels between 2002/3 and 2003/4.
Fylde Borough Council operational services manager Jamie Dixon said: "We will use the same model as we have in Fylde, working towards Wyre having its own three-way stream."
The winner of the 2004 National Recycling Award for Best Local Authority Initiative, Fylde already provides 90% of its residents with a twin bin scheme and 97% of properties with a bin for green waste.
It is now the best recycler in northern England and plans to add plastics and textiles to its collections.
Dixon added: "When Wyre were doing the evaluation of our projects, the fact that we had just won the National Recycling Award was a massive help in securing the contract to work in partnership with them."
