Service Update: Due to roadworks, we were unable to empty recycling bins in the Orleton area of Stanford Bridge on Week Commencing 29th July. We will be returning on Tuesday 7th July and Wednesday 8th July to complete the collections.


With the ever-changing situation relating to Covid-19/Coronavirus, there is a potential that refuse and recycling collections will be affected. We will update this webpage accordingly and will use our social media accounts to keep you updated. You can also sign up to our e-recycling newsletter.

Disposal of waste for people/households with symptoms of coronavirus

Please put used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in rubbish bags. Then put the bag into a second bag and tie it securely. Store it for three days before putting it in your black bin.

If on a sack collection follow the same process and store bags separately from bags of standard household waste for three days. They can then be put out for collection together on your usual collection day.

You can dispose of other household waste as normal

Household Recycling Centres (HRCs)

Some of Worcestershire County Council's Household Recycling Centres are open but with restrictions in place and social distancing measures. Additional restrictions are in place at Malvern HRC. Only 30 cars will be allowed to queue on site. Once this figure is reached you will be turned away until there is space. Please only visit if it is essential to do so and you cannot store your waste at home safely. Read more about the restrictions in place at Household Recycling Centres.

Please note:

1 - Households who use a wheelie bin or share the use of a communal bin are not entitled to free-issue refuse or recycling sacks.

2 - For those households entitled to sacks our annual delivery of sacks takes place in May/June.

3 - We no longer empty non-MHDC wheelie bins.
