This year the information is particularly hard to find on the ESBC web pages, so we are including a link here to make life easier. Waste Collection dates for 2015 (658.0 Kb)

For the majority of properties in Abbots Bromley, the collection normally takes place on a Wednesday unless alternate dates have been advised – such as for the Christmas and New Year holiday periods.

However there will be changes to three days as follows:-

Normal collection date (Rescheduled collection date)

Thursday 25th December (Saturday 20th December)
Friday 26th December (Saturday 27th December)
Thursday 1st January (Saturday 3rd January)

Up to 3 additional bags of the appropriate waste type will be collected with your blue and grey bins during the period 27th December up to and including the 9th January on your collection day. Flattened cardboard will also be collected at the side of your blue bin.

PLEASE NOTE: the brown bins will NOT BE suspended this year. Brown bin collections will be continuing through the Christmas and New Year period to enable residents to recycle any leftover food waste.

If you have excess recyclables they can be taken to one of the recycling sites located throughout the borough. Excess waste can be taken to the household waste site on Shobnall Road, Burton upon Trent or Pennycroft Lane, Uttoxeter.

Christmas card and Christmas tree reycling

After the Christmas period, residents in East Staffordshire can recycle Christmas cards in their blue wheeled bins.

Residents can also recycle their real Christmas trees through the brown bin scheme. Place your real Christmas tree inside your brown bin ensuring that the lid is fully closed or place it at the side of the bin and it will be collected on your collection day.

If you need clarification on when your recycling and waste is to be collected please download a copy of your collection calendar from the waste and recycling pages of our website or contact Customer Services on 0800 269098.
