Guide to Recycling and Waste Collection 2017-2019

I am emailing to inform you that between 20th November and 1st December 2017 all residents will receive, fixed to their grey wheeled bin, the latest Guide to Recycling and Waste Collection.

The Guide outlines what should be placed in the blue, green and grey bins and provides information on other waste services, including disposing of bulky household waste. The Guide also contains a collection calendar, specific to each property, which includes details of Christmas and New Year collection dates for 2017 and 2018.

Waste Management web pages have been updated to ensure consistency and the Online Waste and Recycling Calendar now details property specific collection dates up to November 2019.

The garden waste collection service will be suspended between Monday 18th December 2017 and Friday 12th January 2018 and additional collections of grey bins (non-recyclable waste) will replace garden waste collections during this period. We will also collect real Christmas trees placed at the kerbside with the first green bin collections of 2018. Collection day changes over Christmas and New Year have been minimised as far as possible and crews will be collecting on Saturday’s during this period. All of this information is contained within the Guide, in the South Staffordshire Review newsletter, on our website and will also be shared using social media.

I would be really grateful if any resident queries regarding collection dates could in the first instance please be directed to our website or Customer Services on 01902 696203.

If you have any queries regarding any of the above please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
