Filling in an online form

Stratford-on-Avon District Council are managing some aspects of the waste collection service and are hosting a number of forms on their website.

  • New or replacement bin orders
  • Bin removal — collecting unwanted bins
  • Assisted collection request
  • Refuse enquiry

Why we collect and use this information

The personal data that you provide will be used to allow us to manage waste collections and other related services. On submission of the form, your information will be sent to the relevant teams to deal with your request.
