Hi folks – I’m getting a lot of enquiries regarding Christmas bin collection arrangements in the borough of Walsall, and thought I’d post the official guidance for those that seem concerned about when the guys in orange will come and collect their rubbish.
In a nutshell, collections go weekly for both grey and green bins until Friday 13th January 2017. If your collection is usually a Monday, you’ll not have a collection on Boxing Day, but will on January 2nd, a week later.
Extra bagged waste WILL NOT be taken this year as extra collections are laid on.
If you’re confused as to which your collection day actually is, click here to use the postcode checker on the council website – it works a treat and will tell you exactly when to put out which bin.
Note that the only day the refuse service doesn’t operate is Boxing Day.
Hope that helps clarify things – folks seem to get a bit worked up about Christmas bin collections…
