Hey bin bothers – here’s the Christmas bin information for this festive season. Click for a larger version. Thanks to Vicky Portman for the info.

Hi folks – I’m getting a lot of enquiries regarding Christmas bin collection arrangements in the borough of Walsall, and thought I’d feature the bin calendar for those that seem concerned about when the guys in orange will come and collect their rubbish.

Here’s the latest bin calendar. Note the footnotes as the collection for areas 9 and 10 on the 28th is listed there, but not the main table. Click for a larger version.

If you’re confused, click here to use the postcode checker on the council website.

Here’s the deal for Brownhills and central Pelsall (Area 9) – normal collection day Friday:

  • Friday 18th December 2015 – Grey and green bin as usual
  • Friday 25th December 2015 – No collection
  • Monday 28th December 2015 – Grey and green bin and up to 3 extra bags of rubbish
  • Friday 1st January 2016 – No collection
  • Friday 8th January 2016 – Grey and green bin with up to three extra bags of rubbish

Walsall Wood, North and East Aldridge and Streetly (Area 3) – normal collection Tuesday:

  • Tuesday 22nd December 2015 – Grey and green bin as usual
  • Tuesday 29th December 2015 – Grey and green bin
  • January 5th December 2016 – Grey and green bin as usual

Rushall, Sheffield and north west Aldridge (Area 10) – normal collection Friday:

  • Friday 18th December 2015 – Grey and green bin as usual
  • Friday 25th December 2015 – No collection
  • Monday 28th December 2015 – Grey and green bin and up to 3 extra bags of rubbish
  • Friday 1st January 2016 – No collection
  • Friday 8th January 2016 – Grey and green bin with up to three extra bags of rubbish

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…

Of course, if the winds get up again, your bin could well put itself out… Image from My Writer’s Circle.

    They haven’t collected our extra bags just abandoned them on the side of the road and no extra van has come all day great job yet again Walsall council!!

    • ‘Crews will be collecting the green recycling bins, normal grey bins and up to three extra bags of general refuse. The extra bags WILL BE COLLECTED SEPARATELY BY A DIFFERENT CREW and I’ve been asked to pass on the message from Clean and Green that if your extra bags are not collected, place them out again and the crew will be around next day. Those guys are expected to be working hard to keep up.’
