Brown Bin Collection from January

The Parish Council have asked us to advise all residents about the charge that will be introduced by Stafford Borough Council. From January 1st 2021.

From that date, if you want your Brown Bin emptied it will cost £36 per year. All residents will receive a letter with information shortly.

The Borough Council said:

“You may be aware that around 65% of local authorities across the country already charge their residents for this. Collecting garden waste is not a statutory service – and last year we announced that unfortunately we would have to introduce a £36 annual charge for those households who wanted to continue with the brown bin service.

Our council has been commended for the way it has managed its finances. But there is no escaping the very real financial pressures that local authorities are facing – and this has now been amplified as we respond to, and recover from, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The money raised from the collection of garden waste will help with these budgetary pressures and therefore protect other essential services to our residents.

We will be sending all residents information directly about this change but please can you also circulate this website address within your parish www.staffordbc.gov.uk/brownbin
