Total Reuse have agreed a contract with FCC Environment who are one of the UK's leading waste and resource management companies and the winners of the recent tender to provide waste collection services to the residents of South Ribble. The companies approach to minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill fits perfectly with the ethos of Total Reuse and together we will look to transform waste into a valuable resource wherever possible.
The team of John Ferris and Paul Donnolly have delivered the service for a number of years. In the first instance as a direct sub-contractor of South Ribble Borough Council and then Amey International. They will continue to do so under the Total Reuse banner and we welcome them to Team Total.
The Bulky Waste team have also been providing the West Lancashire Borough Council bulky collection service and following a series of discussions with council officials this to is now part of the Total Reuse Bulky Waste Collection Service.
With the two bulky waste contracts and the recent agreement with Any Junk UK we are now in a position where we will be able to divert reusable items from landfill from a variety of sources. Together, these contracts cover most of South Lancashire and compliment our domestic and commercial clearance service.
HOW IT WORKS
If you've got some household rubbish that's too big for your bin - like an old fridge, television, a mattress or a chair you contact your local council to arrange a collection. You will have to pay for the collection in advance and tell them exactly what is to be collected. Any items not listed will not be collected.
West Lancashire collections are made on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, depending on where you live.
South Ribble collections are made on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday, depending on where you live.
The Bulky Waste services of both council's do not collect the following items: building materials, metal, engine oil, car parts, glass, asbestos, pressurised gas containers, corrosive or other dangerous chemicals, garden waste, car tyres or batteries. (You may be able to dispose of these at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
If your items do not meet the requirements for Bulky Waste you can contact AnyJunk. Under this contract we will be able to take all types of non-hazardous junk and waste from bric-a-brac to DIY and builders waste (not including certain hazardous items such as asbestos and biological waste).
