Residents can look forward to unaffected collections

Residents of Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough can expect their refuse, garden waste and recycling to be collected as normal over both early May bank holidays.

Collections scheduled for either Monday 1 May 2023 or Monday 8 May 2023 will be made as usual.

Nigel Harris, General Manager of the Joint Waste Service, said:

“We know that residents will be keen to know whether an additional bank holiday will impact our service. However, our teams will be working on both the Early May Bank Holiday and the bank holiday for the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III. We hope this will help residents tidy up after their street parties and celebrations.”

For more information on a specific collection date, residents can call 0345 002 0022 or visit the Lichfield District Council website or Tamworth Borough Council website.
