Your new waste and recycling collection service
During 2016 Stroud District Council will be making some important changes to waste and recycling collections. Please note, we are no longer supplying black bags You are now required to use either the grey wheelie bins or beige bags for the storage and collection of general rubbish.
As well as the items that you currently recycle, you will be able to recycle all your food waste in new food waste bins.
Wheelie-bins will also be provided to replace black bags for your rubbish, which will be collected fortnightly, instead of weekly.
If you haven't received your containers by 20 October 2016 please email us at email@example.com or call 01453 754424.
