Stafford Borough Council have issued the following statement:

Our recycling and waste contractors, Veolia, will be changing some of their bin collection routes to improve the efficiency of the service.

There has been a significant increase in the number of homes across the borough over the last few years and, with more being built in the future, Veolia are implementing bin collection routes that will better meet the need of this growth.

This will mean that residents may have a change to their normal collection day.

A leaflet notifying householders of the potential change is being distributed to every home in the borough.

And a new bin collection calendar, with the household’s designated collection day, will be issued at least a fortnight before the changes come in to effect.

Bank holidays will also be changing for everyone – and these will be indicated on the calendar.

All the changes will take place from the week commencing Monday 2 July.
