Recycling, bins and waste

We work with Tamworth Borough Council to collect waste and recycling across Lichfield, Burntwood and Tamworth and surrounding areas.

Visit our bin checker to find out when your bins will be emptied. If your bin is not emptied, please fill in our online form (no later than the end of the next working day). 

If our crews have not reported an issue with your bin (e.g. you forgot to put it out by 7am etc), we will return within 3 days to empty it. Please leave it out until we do.

If our crews have reported an issue with your bin, we will not be able to empty it until your next scheduled collection. Thank you for your understanding.

If you have any questions call our customer services team on 0345 002 0022 (calls charged at local rate if calling from a landline).
