Check your Christmas bin days


    Christmas Bins

    Residents in Stafford Borough are being reminded to check when their recycling and waste will be collected over the Christmas period. 

    There will be revised collection dates for green, blue and brown bins, and blue bag, in the borough from Saturday 18 December until 15 January.  

    The borough council is encouraging people to check the rescheduled dates on their collection day calendars or at  

    Bins should be out by 7am on the revised collection days. 

    If you do not have access to the internet and require a copy of your calendar, contact 01785 619402 to arrange for one to be sent to you. Calendars are no longer sent automatically through the post. 

    Homes across the borough currently recycle more than 50 percent of all the waste collected from the doorsteps. Tips for recycling over the festive period – such as places to compost Christmas Trees - can be found from the website (link no longer available).

    The cost for having your brown bin garden waste collected has been frozen at £36 for 2022 and to continue using the service go to or contact the council at 01785 619402.
