Dudley Council will start the roll out of its improved waste service next month.
Starting in July, around 40,000 households will receive two recycling bags, a grey wheelie bin for non-recyclable waste and a brochure detailing the new service as part of the first phase of delivery.
The improvements will mean that all borough households will be able to recycle plastic bottles and cardboard at the kerbside by the spring of 2014, when the phased deliveries to all the remaining households will be completed.
Residents will use their blue bag for paper and card, green bag for plastic bottles and cans and their existing black box for glass bottles and jars.
Households that do not have a black box will need to request one from Dudley Council Plus by calling 0300 555 2345.
Households that have participated in the trial and therefore already have a blue and a green bag will continue to use the ones they already have.
Residents could see temporary changes to collection days while the improvements are being made, even if they are not in the first phase areas. Those who are affected will receive details through their letterbox.
Councillor Tracy Wood, cabinet member for environment and culture, said:
“Dudley is a green borough and we want to do everything we can to help our residents to recycle more from their home.
"Dudley Council is delighted to be rolling out the new service as it will help us to make more efficient collections while collecting more for recycling.
"We pride ourselves on offering a quality service to our residents and I would like to thank residents for their patience while we make these important changes.”
