Bins and Recycling

Waste and Recycling Collection Arrangements - Week Commencing Monday, September 19th

Due to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday, September 19th there will be no bin collection service on this date, and collections for the remainder of the week may be up to a day behind schedule.

My collection day is Monday, September 19th, what do I do?

Please present your bin for collection on Tuesday, September 20th instead. We will not be collecting bins on Monday 19th.

My collection day falls on Tuesday 20th - Friday 23rd, what do I do?

Please present your bin on your collection day as normal. Once we have finished the previous day's collections our crews will start collecting bins normally scheduled for that day. For example, if your bin collection day is normally Wednesday, please present your bin by 7am on Wednesday as normal as we may still get to you, but please allow up to one extra day for us to reach you. It is possible that some of Friday 23rd's collections may be made on Saturday 24th, therefore if your bin is not emptied on Friday, please leave it presented for collection on Saturday 24th.

My bin has not been emptied, what do I do?

For collections scheduled week beginning Monday, September 19th, please allow one extra day for the collection to be made before contacting us to report a missed bin. For example, if your collection is due on Tuesday, please allow us until the end of Wednesday to empty your bin, and contact us on Thursday if it has not been emptied.

Recycling Centres

All of Staffordshire's Recycling Centres will be closed on Monday, September 19th. This includes the recycling centres in Wombourne, Bilbrook, and Cannock. The Recycling Centres will resume normal opening hours on Tuesday, September 20th.
