Refuse, Bins and recycling, Partington

General Information

The bins in Partington are collected on Monday mornings. You must leave the right bin outside your property before the lorries arrive to empty the waste.

You can take your household waste to the tip for recycling and disposal. The nearest household waste disposal sites are:

Chester Road, Stretford. M32 9AU

If you're not able to get large or bulky items to a tip yourself, you can book a collection from Trafford Refuse Services for a cost of £26 for up to 5 items. However, there are lots of other free ways to get rid of unwanted items such as freecycle, the 'Partington Sale or Swap group' on Facebook, or charitable donations.
