Garden Waste Collection Scheme

South Ribble Borough Council operates an opt-in Garden Waste Subscription Service.

The service will cost £30 per year for every bin you want collecting.

You can subscribe to the service now by using the link below.

Please note, it can take up to 10 working days for your permit to arrive and your brown bin will not be collected until the sticker is attached.

If after 10 working days you have not received your permit, please contact our Gateway team on: 01772 625625 and report it.

If you want more than one subscription, but only have one bin we will provide an additional bin for free.

Using the Subscribe Online process you can now also subscribe to an optional yearly direct debit service meaning you won't need to re-register each year. After successfully subscribing, stickers will be automatically posted to the chosen address as long as the Direct Debit remains valid.
Payment for 2019/20 will be taken up front with payment for subsequent years being taken by direct debit on successful sign up to the direct debit scheme.
Further terms and conditions and details about the Direct Debit Guarantee are displayed during the subscription process.  

You can read more about the service by clicking this link.

If you do not wish to subscribe to the new Garden Waste Service you will no longer get a brown bin collection from the 9th April 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 our container charging policy if lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair.
