Seasonal changes to collections

Seasonal changes to brown bins

There will be no brown bin collections on Friday 22 December through to Thursday 4 January but you can still put vegetable peelings, leftovers, cooked and uncooked food waste and all manner of festive garden foliage in the bin ready for collections to restart on 5 January 2018.

Disposal of natural Christmas trees

Natural Christmas trees should be cut up and placed inside the brown bin or, if less than 5' tall, left whole beside the bin on collection day.  Trees can also be taken to recycling centres in Biddulph, Cheadle or Leek.

The Council does not operate a shredding service so please do not leave your tree in a car park.  Dumping waste (including trees) is fly tipping and anyone caught could face prosecution and a fine of up to £50,000.
