There are a number of organisations who can help local businesses to become more resource efficient, reducing the amount of waste produced and saving money. Dudley MBC does not offer a trade waste recycling service, however, there are local companies who can offer recycling services for items ranging from office waste to construction or agricultural waste.
Local Recycling Companies
The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) help people recycle more and waste less, both at home and at work and 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.
National Industrial Symbiosis Programme (NISP)
Industrial symbiosis brings together traditionally separate industries and organisations from all business sectors to improve industry resource efficiency and sustainability; involving the physical exchange of materials, energy, water and/or by-products.
NISP is a free business opportunity programme that delivers environmental, social and economic benefits and is the first industrial symbiosis initiative in the world to be launched on a national scale.
Information for commercial/trade waste can be found on Yell under the "Waste Disposal". You will need to look for companies that operate a Waste Transfer Station.
There are some major landfill sites in the area, however only vehicles equipped with independent, mechanical tipping facilities are able to utilise these sites under health and safety regulations.

The council provides access to its database of closed landfill sites. You can select an address and the current mapping for that location is displayed along with the boundary of any landfill site recorded. Then you can view the data sheet associated with any landfill site shown which provides summary information.
