On Monday April 9, South Ribble Council win introduce a ‘Garden Waste Subscription Service’, an opt-in service across the borough.
The service will cost £30 per year for every bin residents want to be collected.
A spokesman from South Ribble Council said: “If you do not wish to subscribe to the new Garden Waste Service you will no longer get a brown bin collection from the April 9 2018, and you can either compost the garden waste at home or dispose of it at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre for free.
