Waste collection services during COVD-19 (coronavirus)

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.
