Bins and Recycling

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 now able to take requests for additional blue bags for paper and card recycling. Please fill in our form to request one.

UPDATE ON 25/05/2022 - You can check when your street is scheduled to receive their blue bag here. Missing bags for Hedging Lane are due to be delivered today.

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).
