Bin Collection updates
Stratford District Council are trying our best to ensure that all properties continue to receive a fortnightly refuse and recycling collection during the COVID19 crisis.
Our contractor (Biffa) and their crew are doing a wonderful job working at an extremely stressful time, with a reduced workforce due to crew members self-isolating.
In order to ensure a collection for every property, we are sorry to inform you that the crew will only be able to empty the contents of your bin. No side waste will be collected with any of the bins during this time to ensure completion of rounds. Thank you for your understanding.
