Dudley Council
Dudley Skyline

Dudley Council is currently trialling the use of specially designed litter bins in Stourbridge for promotional purposes for businesses.

It is hoped to extend this opportunity to other town centres.

Ensuring that our town centres are kept tidy helps foster pride, encourages residents to love their community and helps attract visitors.

The installation of these bins will provide local businesses with the opportunity to promote themselves via a secure panel built into the unit.

We currently have 30 units, each with two panels, available to rent for promotional purposes on a monthly basis.

So why use the scheme?

  • Be visible as part of the local community

  • Be associated with town centre pride

  • Show your commitment to keeping our town centres clear of rubbish

  • Enjoy low cost advertising compared with other 'external' mediums

  • Easy to spot

  • You control your message

  • Graphic design and print services available (upon request and at an additional cost)

  • Rent the site for as little as one month, or for as long as you wish (subject to availability)

  • Special rate for local Stourbridge businesses

  • Easy for visitors to read, identify and take note of important details eg telephone numbers, email addresses, etc

  • Thousands of visitors to the town centre each year

  • Ongoing maintenance of the sites by Dudley Council

  • High visibility to 1,500+ students and night-time visitors

  • Bookings are on a single unit basis, however each bin has two panels – allowing you to provide two different messages if you wish at no additional cost

Costs (per bin, comprising of two message panels)
  • Stourbridge businesses: £80 per four week month

  • Charities and not for profit organisations: £80 per four week period

  • Businesses beyond the Stourbridge area: £100 per four week period
