    I thought the brown bins were only for garden rubbish not to put your parents in :)

    My green bin wasn't collected yesterday - I presume snow made the road tricky.
    Is this likely to happen in the thaw? Or is that it until next collection day?
    Nothing on SBC site.

    They managed to empty a few before being called back to the depot. I think that'll be it till next collection day. You could always try ringing them?

    So here we are. In Tier 4 if a service is open you can travel to that service. Does anyone know if the tip is open?

    No, I've not tried 'phoning them.
    I'm still awaiting replies to emails.

    Does anyone know of any fabric recycling facilities in Stone / Stafford? I've got a single large old curtain which is well past its prime.
