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

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