Ribble Valley Borough Council

Recycling and refuse

We are committed to developing sustainable and cost-effective ways to recycle and dispose of all waste so that people can enjoy living, working and visiting the Ribble Valley.

In line with government waste hierarchy our overall aims are to minimise the amount of waste that has to be disposed of, and to reduce the impact of waste on our natural environment.

Changes to paper recycling collection

From 3 March 2014 paper and cardboard (white sacks) will still be collected fortnightly but on the same day as your Paper recycling bagwheeled bin collection. Bin collection days and collection points have not changed.

Find out which week to put your paper recycling white sack out for collection.
