The rollout of green wheeled bins for the collection of uncooked food and garden waste in Ribble Valley starts at the end of October.
Households will soon 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 will receive 240-litre green wheeled bins in exchange for the standard 140-litre green bins, which will be redistributed to non-gardened properties that currently only have burgundy and blue 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 given date. If their bin is not there or not empty, the larger bin will not be left.
Residents can use the new bin for fruit and vegetable peelings, seeds and apple cores, tea bags, coffee grounds and filter papers, paper towels or tissues (not if they have touched meat) and egg shells. Cooked food, fish, meat and dairy products, or tissue that has touched meat cannot be recycled.
A council spokesman said: “By signing up to the council’s collections of uncooked waste, households can help boost recycling rates even further, which will preserve our valley for generations to come.
