Bin guide and instructions

We run weekly bin collections to all homes across Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough. Visit our bin calendar to find out when to put your bins out.

We alternate the bins each week, so one week we will empty your black bin and the next week we'll empty your blue bin.

If you are signed up to the garden waste scheme we will also empty your garden waste bin(s) on a fortnightly basis on the same day as your blue bin.

Please make sure your bins are out by 6am by the kerbside (at your usual collection point) on the day of your collection.

If your bin was not out on time and we do not empty it, we cannot come back to empty it at a later time. If your bin was out on time, did not contain the wrong waste, and was not too heavy, please let us know no later than midnight on the day after your bin was supposed to be emptied.
