Picture shows Recycling bins and waste

Residents in Newcastle-under-Lyme will see changes to their waste and recycling collections as a result of the initial impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The council is bringing in the changes, including not collecting food waste in a separate container, in order to maintain the overall service for as long as possible.

We do understand that the impact of the Coronavirus (Covid 19) is having a massive impact on us all.

For most of us we will be spending far more time in our homes than before. This means that, for some people, they will be exposed to new or worse neighbour problems.

The Council is receiving multiple noise and garden bonfire complaints each day and we are open for business and dealing with them as best we can.


Desperate times call for desperate measures – of alcohol.

As everyone knows, there’s extraordinary demand for hand sanitiser at the moment to the point where it’s extremely hard, if not impossible, to find on the shelves.

This is a particular problem for the Council as it’s an essential product for our hardworking recycling and waste crews on a normal day – but even more so during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Dear fellow resident,

Over the past couple of weeks, as the true scale of the Coronavirus pandemic has become clearer, officers and councillors at the Borough Council have been working incredibly hard to ensure that essential services to the public are maintained as far as possible. 

During these unprecedented times we are continuing to provide vital Council services to you, your families and our communities.

We are carefully following Government and NHS guidelines, putting the health and welfare of our workforce, their families, and our communities at the forefront of everything we do and part of every decision.
