New green bins to be rolled out-in the Ribble Valley
4:34pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
THE rollout of green wheeled bins for the collection of uncooked food and garden waste in the Ribble Valley is set to begin at the end of October.
Households will shortly receive letters advising them of the date their bin will be delivered and giving them a final chance to opt out of the scheme.
Gardened properties in the borough will receive large 240-litre green wheeled bins in exchange for their standard 140-litre green bins.
Households participating in the scheme are asked to leave their green bin at the edge of their property by no later than 7.30am on the date stated in their letter.
Residents can use their new bin for fruit and vegetable peelings, seeds and apple cores, tea bags, coffee grounds and filter papers, paper towels or tissues and egg shells.
Robert Thompson, chairman of Ribble Valley Borough Council’s community services committee, said: “Ribble Valley households have made great strides in recycling in recent years, but more can be done. By signing up to the council’s collections of uncooked waste, households can help boost the borough’s recycling rates even further.”
