Please be advised that the waste and recycling service has again been suspended today due to the adverse weather conditions. Although the weather has improved the road and pavement conditions remain dangerous. Additionally the drifting snow has caused some roads to be reduced to a single carriageway and we are also hampered by abandoned vehicles particularly in the rural areas.

Catch-up plans have been put in place from Monday when the weather forecast has improved considerably, this will mean that the brown bin service will be temporarily suspended to allow the vehicles to collect outstanding green and blue bins. Residents can take bins back on to their property over the weekend if preferred but they will need to be back out for collection by 7am on Monday.

An explanatory message has been placed on the introduction for all calls into the Contact Centre and there is also a dedicated webpage for winter information – www.staffordbc.gov.uk/winter-information-and-advice that is being well used.

We will provide a further update when more details are available. In the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information or clarification on the above.
