Hi folks – I’m getting a lot of search hits for Christmas bin collection arrangements in the borough of Walsall, and thought I’d feature the bin calendar again for those that seem concerned about when the guys in orange will come and collect their rubbish.
Here’s the deal for Brownhills and central Pelsall (Area 9) and Rushall, Shelfield and West Aldridge (Area 10) – normal collection Fridays:
The next collection will be they grey general bin and the green recycling bin this Friday (2nd January 2014). Since there wasn’t a collection last week, you can put out up to three extra bags of rubbish beside your grey bin. There will be an additional recycling collection next week (Friday 9th January) so you can put any extra recycling in the bin after collection.
Walsall Wood, North and East Aldridge and Streetly (Area 3) – normal collection Tuesdays:
The next collection will be they grey general bin and the green recycling bin next Tuesday (6th January 2014). Since there wasn’t a collection last week, you can put out up to three extra bags of rubbish beside your grey bin.
For other areas, see the calendar above.
Note that the only days the refuse service doesn’t operate are the three bank holidays – but collections are rejigged over the festive season to prevent anyone going 3 weeks without a collection.
Hope that helps clarify things – folks seem to get a bit worked up about Christmas bin collections…
this afternoon, 2 January 2015, grey bins emptied along Friezland Lane and all extra bags left uncollected.
The bags are collected by a separate crew:
