Weather disruption

Updated on Monday, 28 December 

We are still attempting to make waste, recycling and garden waste collection despite the snowy conditions. We will attempt to get to everyone but if you are due a collection and you don't receive one, then please leave your bin out and crews will return to collect when they can, depending on the weather. You don't need to contact us. Remember we are currently on our Christmas collection schedule.

Christmas bin collection changes

There will be changes to waste, recycling and garden waste collections over the Christmas and New Year period. Find out more about Christmas and New Year waste and recycling collections.

Waste and recycling services and Covid-19

Any disruption to services will be reported on this page. You can also sign up to our recycling e-newsletter

Worcestershire County Council's Household Recycling Centres are open but with social distancing measures in place. Find out more about visiting a Household Recycling Centre during the coronavirus pandemic.

Disposal of waste for people/households with symptoms of coronavirus

Please put used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in rubbish bags. Then put the bag into a second bag and tie it securely. Store it for three days before putting it in your black bin.

If on a sack collection follow the same process and store bags separately from bags of standard household waste for three days. They can then be put out for collection together on your usual collection day.

You can dispose of other household waste as normal.
