Recycling and Waste - Civic Amenity Site Visits

At certain times in the year, some Parish Councils have elected to pay for a refuse collection vehicle to visit a specific location on pre-arranged Saturday mornings. Please refer to your local Parish social media or internet pages for information on when the Civic Amenity Visits are available in your area.

Parish residents can dispose of excess waste as long as it does not include soil, rubble, fridges, freezers or televisions, liquid waste, paint waste and hazardous materials. 

We are no longer be able to accept sofas or armchairs at the Civic Amenity Visits.

This is due to a change in legislation around Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), which are found in soft furnishings. These items cannot be crushed, (as they would in the collection vehicle) and need to be collected separately, either by arrangement with Stafford Borough Council or taken to designated containers at the Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Stafford and Stone. 

Further guidance on how to dispose of waste and recycling at the kerbside (pdf 65kb) in Stafford Borough and via the Household Waste Recycling Centres.
