Bin collections

Bins to be out by 6.30am
Residents who live in Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough will need to put their bins out by 6.30am on their collection day, starting from Monday 25 February.

Through the Lichfield and Tamworth Joint Waste Service, Lichfield District Council and Tamworth Borough Council are asking that residents from across both areas put their bins out 30 minutes earlier – by 6.30am rather than by 7am – on their collection day.

This is so bin collections can start earlier, to avoid peak traffic and finish rounds in the light by 3.30pm, which is safer.

Cllr David Leytham, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services, Leisure & Waste, said: “We’ve moved the start of our bin rounds forward by 30 minutes as our crews are getting stuck in traffic and have more homes to collect from as housing developments are built.

“Even if your bins are emptied later in the day, please make sure they are out by 6.30am as we may change our rounds when we’ve worked out the best routes.

“I’d like to thank everyone in advance for their help with this, however, as many bins go out the night before, most households shouldn’t notice the change.”

From 25 February, if your bin has not been emptied by 3.30pm, please report it as a missed bin online at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/missedbins or call the team on 0345 002 0022.
