UPDATE Grey bin waste collection

There are apologies all round from me and Bromsgrove District Council for the misleading information circulated yesterday.  The original email should have said the bin collectors were only going to visit specific sites in Barnt Green.  These have now been visited as advised by an email received earlier today:

The following roads  have now been  recollected Thursday 3nd  (GREY BINS)

  • Greenbank
  • Poplar Drive
  • Orchard Croft
  • Victoria Mews
  • Penzer Drive

Please note the green bins will still be collected on this Saturday, so have them out by 7am.  The usual grey bin collection will resume on Tuesday 8th January and every other week after that, alternating with the green bin collections.

More information is available from Bromsgrove District Council: (for Christmas schedule) and

So, just to sum up, Bromsgrove DC have confirmed they will not be coming round later to collect any more grey bins today – next collection is Tuesday 8th Jan.

Grey bin waste collection

All residents are advised to place their grey bins on the kerbside for 07:00 for collection.
