Civic Amenity's 2024

 

 

 Civic Amenity Visits 2024

Site: St Thomas Church Church

Dates: 30th March, 20th July and 9th November 

Times: 10.00-12.00

 

 

Please be aware that, due to a change in legislation, we will no longer be able to accept sofas or armchairs at the 2024 Civic Amenity Visits. This is due to legislation around Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) which are found in soft furnishings, these items cannot be crushed (as they would be in the collection vehicle) and need to be collected separately either by arrangement with Stafford Borough Council or taken to designated containers at the Household Waste Recycling Centres in Stafford and Stone.

All residents will be instructed to stand clear whilst the RCV’s packer is in use.

No residents will be allowed to operate the bin lifts or RCV packer as they are not trained to do so.

The driver is only present to operate the vehicle and it’s controls. Residents are required to load waste into the vehicle themselves unless a wheeled bin is used, in which case the driver will operate the lifting equipment.

Veolia staff and other residents must be treated with respect.

The driver is empowered to end the Civic Amenity site visit at any point if they feel threatened.

The driver of the vehicle reserves the right to refuse any material that they deem to be unsafe or hazardous.

Social distancing should be applied at all times wherever possible. The current Government guidelines will apply at all times.

A temporary barrier will be put in place by the driver to ensure social distancing can be observed.
