Are the tips open? Opening hours for waste recycling centres over Christmas & New Year


Stoke-on-Trent’s tips will be open to the public between Christmas and New Year as the city’s bin men are given a well-deserved break.

Bin collections are suspended until January 4, except for one collection on December 30 for those whose bins should have been collected on Christmas Day.

But the Household Waste Recycling Centres at Hanford and Burslem will be opening from tomorrow (December 27) and will operate until New Year’s Eve.

They will then close for New Year’s Day before reopening January 2.

Councillor Carl Edwards, cabinet member for housing and environment, said: “Our bin men do a fantastic job – walking on average 70 miles per week in all sorts of weather.

“We think they deserve some time off at Christmas to spend with their family and recharge the batteries.

“They’ve worked all through Covid and both lockdowns. We forget that they are front line workers like many health professionals and they help keep the city going.
