As of the April 9 2018, South Ribble Borough Council will be introducing an opt-in Garden Waste Subscription Service.
The service will cost £30 per year for every bin you want collected. You can subscribe to the service now by visiting www.southribble.gov.uk/gardenwaste……..but you will not receive your bin sticker until March 2018. If you want more than one subscription, but only have one bin SRBC will provide an additional bin for free. Collections will continue on a fortnightly basis on the same day.
You can save money by sharing a brown bin with a neighbour – one resident will have to take responsibility for registration and payments. To make sure your brown bins are emptied as normal, you need to have subscribed to the new scheme by March 2nd.
If you do not wish to subscribe to the new Garden Waste Service you will no longer get a brown bin collection from April 9 2018, and you can either compost the garden waste at home or dispose of it at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre for free.
All bins are subject to the Council’s container charging policy if lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair.
REMEMBER: if you do not subscribe, your brown bin will not be emptied as normal.
