Waste bin provision

South Ribble Borough Council charges for the provision and delivery of waste collection containers to newly-built properties.

A fee of £100 per property is due at the property numbering request stage. The containers will be delivered when requested by the occupants.

If the development is a multi-occupancy property, the fee will remain at £100 per unit. However a site visit will be made and bin provision may be in the form of larger communal bins.

We issue the following containers:

Grey bin – non-recyclable waste
Blue bin – glass, cans and plastic bottles
Green box – paper and card
Brown bin – garden and food waste (for properties with a garden)
Food waste caddy – for properties without a garden
