Information on bins, recycling, and waste services for residents of Dudley borough

The services we offer are chargeable as they are not included in your Business Rates. The costs can vary depending on the type of provision your business requires.

Business waste can be from any commercial activity, even if you only use part of your home for your business. However the waste from this part of your home cannot be disposed of with your normal household collections. It will also not be accepted at our Household Waste Recycling Centres. You must request an authorised service to collect and dispose of your business waste responsibly.

Skip services

We only offer a limited service and so are currently not able to contract our skip services to additional businesses. The fees published on our website only apply to existing contracts.

You can view a list of companies that privately hire out skip services by visiting Yell.

Skip Licence

If you are a business that would like to hire out skips, then a licence is required. Any skips placed on the street must also comply with the requirements of legislation.


There are organisations who can help local businesses to become more resource efficient. Reducing the amount of waste produced can help save money.

We are not able to offer a commercial or trade waste recycling service. There are local companies who do offer commercial recycling services. These can deal with items such as office, construction and agricultural waste.

The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) helps people recycle more and waste less, both at home and at work. It also offers economic as well as environmental benefits.

They work with a wide range of partners. From major UK businesses, trade bodies and local authorities through to individuals looking for practical advice.

Duty of care

Duty of care ensures you take measures to dispose of your waste properly. Failure to take responsibility for your business waste could lead to prosecution.
