Prior to the 1970s there were few controls on waste disposal activities. The Control of Pollution Act 1974 was introduced to tighten the control and regulation of waste disposal sites and provided the first waste disposal licensing regime.

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 datasheet associated with any landfill site shown which provides summary information.

The Environment Agency licences and regulates active and operating landfill sites to ensure that their impact on the environment is minimised. Information about currently active and operating landfill sites in the Dudley borough is available from the Environment Agency.
