Problems on the M6 today are causing issues with bin collections due to traffic hold ups around the Borough. Please do not take any unemptied bins back in, leave them out for collection and they will be emptied at the earliest opportunity.
Did you know that you could make a big difference by recycling from the smallest room in your house? Lots of people recycle from the kitchen but forget that there is a lot that can be recycled from the bathroom too. Please visit www.staffordbc.gov.uk/bathroom for more information.
Ever wondered where the recycling you put in your blue bin goes? Check out our informative short film, Message in a Bottle to find out!
Where possible the caddy should be kept inside the blue bin. However if you need more room for your mixed recycling in the blue bin, the caddy can be taken out and placed at the side of the bin for collection.
If the caddy is placed beside the bin please put the paper inside carrier bags, to prevent the paper from blowing away or getting excessively wet. These bags will not be returned to your property but will be recycled.
If your paper caddy is missing or damaged please call our Customer Contact Centre on 01785 619402 or email email@example.com
with your address details so that we can arrange a free replacement.
The standard size green bin for residents in Stafford Borough is now 180 litres, replacing the previously issued 240 litre bins. This size bin will be provided to all new properties and as a replacement bin for missing and damaged bins.
The 180 litre bin can also be provided on request if you are finding the existing bin too large for your requirements.
A replacement 240 litre bin can be provided for a one off charge of £35.
Please contact us on 01785 619402 to make required arrangements.
