The Council provide and maintain litterbins in an attempt to prevent the depositing of litter in public places and preserving Ribble Valley as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The litterbins are emptied on a regular basis by the Councils own operational services.
Litter in a public place is unsightly, dangerous to animals and an offence for which you can be fined so always try to use a litterbin or take it home.
Ribble Valley Borough Council has taken recycling to the streets with the provision of new litterbins which have separate sections for recyclables such as glass, cans and plastic bottles and for general waste/litter. For ease of use the litterbins use the same colour scheme as the wheeled bins provided to residents for their recycling and refuse collection service - blue for recyclables and burgundy for general waste will over time replace the current litterbins.
To report a damaged litterbin, request a new litterbin or just to report a bin that needs emptying please contact 01200 425111
