Garden waste collection are set to begin across Walsall after being postponed due to reduced staffing during the early stages of the Coronavirus pandemic. Collections of garden waste were due to begin on 6 April but were delayed so that essential household waste collections could be prioritised and maintained. 

Regular revision and planning, along with an improvement in staffing levels, has meant that garden waste collections can begin on a revised 5 weekly schedule for residents across the borough from Monday 11 May.

During the COVID-19 emergency Walsall Council is working hard to maintain key front line public services and, like many other businesses and service providers, we are facing challenges with self-isolation, government restrictions and impact on our staff.

With this in mind, we are prioritising the collection of grey and green household waste and recycling bins every two weeks. To ensure resources are available to maintain this priority service, garden waste (brown bin) and bulky household item collections have been suspended until further notice, and the Household Waste and Recycling Centres (tips) are closed to the public.

There are more than 116,500 households in the borough, and we are asking for everyone’s support at this difficult time to make services run as smoothly as possible. We all need to work together, adjust our behaviours and help each other in these unprecedented times.
