Refuse and Recycling

Stratford-on-Avon District Council, in partnership with its contractor Biffa Municipal Limited, provides a fortnightly refuse, dry recycling and garden/food waste collection service to all households across the district.

Our Commitment
  • To reduce waste that goes to landfill; and
  • To increase the proportion of waste that is recycled or composted.

Through the Warwickshire Waste Partnership, all Councils in Warwickshire have a Municipal Waste Management Strategy for managing waste in Warwickshire until 2020.

Waste Hierarchy

The 'Waste Hierarchy' ranks waste disposal and treatment options in order of environmental impact.

  • Reduce - means decreasing the amount of waste that we produce. This is the most sustainable option with the lowest environmental impact.
  • Reuse - means using something again, either for its original purpose or for a similar purpose. If you have an unwanted item, someone else may be able to reuse it.
  • Recycle - means processing used materials into new products thereby reducing the demand for raw materials.
  • Recover - energy from waste facilities use waste treatment technologies to turn non-recyclable waste into a source of renewable energy.
  • Landfill - means putting waste back into the ground. It results in the loss of valuable resources and is the most costly waste management option financially and environmentally.
