Bins and Recycling

Bin collections - 19 September service changes

To enable operatives from our Joint Waste Service to observe this historic event, waste collections will be suspended on Monday 19 September. We will catch up with our collections throughout the week.

Garden waste bins that are due for collection on Monday 19 September will be emptied on Tuesday 20 September, Wednesday 21 September and Thursday 22 September. Please leave your garden waste bin out by 6:30am on Tuesday 20 September and, if necessary, on Tuesday evening and Wednesday evening (21 September).

Refuse and recycling bins and bags that are due to be collected on Monday 19 September will be collected, along with side waste, on Saturday 24 September. Please leave your refuse and recycling bins out on Friday 23 September.

Bin deliveries and swaps and scrap metal collections that are due on Monday 19 September will be made on Tuesday 20 September - we will contact residents to advise.

Trade waste that is due to be collected on Monday 19 September will be picked up on Tuesday 20 September.

Thank you for your assistance and understanding.


Household waste and recycling centres

All Staffordshire County Council household waste and recycling centres will remain closed on Monday 19 September.


Changes to recycling: To make sure more of our waste is recycled, we are changing the way we collect and dispose of recycling. The change will see glass, cans and plastics continue to be collected in the current blue bins, and paper and card collected in new blue bags from May 2022. See our FAQ page for more information

We are currently working on changing all communal properties to the new dual stream recycling service. Purple bins are being provided for paper and card and blue bins for glass, cans and plastic.

Our waste services are jointly operated with Lichfield District Council.

Find out when your bins will be emptied using the online bin calendar (on our partner's Lichfield District Council website). 

Missed Bins Tuesday 13 September - Due to a parked vehicle we have not been able to complete rounds to Hodge Lane and Tamworth Road. Please leave your bins out as crews will return tomorrow.

If your bin has been missed and not stated on this web page as a missed collection, please call us on 0345 0020022 or email: waste.strategy@lichfielddc.gov.uk or fill in the online missed bin form.


Please make sure your bins are out by 6am by the kerbside (at your usual collection point) on the day of your collection.
