The bins at Stone have been temporarily removed, as the owners of the land didn't feel able to continue with the bins in the current location. As this is a well-used facility in a busy location, we are now actively pursuing other options in the Stone area. This is likely to take a little while, as our land ownership is limited in the vicinity, and any new site will need to meet strict access and maintenance criteria to secure approval.

In the meantime, the best option for rubbish disposal will be our other facilities at Etruria and Great Haywood. We recognise this isn't a workable option for those boaters based in Stone, and are prioritising securing an interim site in the town.

Thank you for your patience and consideration in keeping the canal and local area clean in the meantime. We'll share a further update on this arrangement as soon as we can, and certainly by next Friday 26th January.
