Bin collections will change for around 30,000 households in South Staffordshire as part of an overhaul of the system.
A total of 150 routes will be introduced on October 14 meaning bins will be collected on different days in two thirds of the district.
It is the first time bin collections have changed in the district in 10 years.
The council renewed its waste contract with Biffa Municipal earlier this year under a reduced cost which is expected to save the authority £380,000 a year.
Council bosses said the routes, which are likely to stay in place for 14 years, will reduce unnecessary travel and ‘revolutionise’ the service.
It has been working on changing the routes for the past year.
