Bookings live for next pop-up tip
People can now book their appointment at the next pop-up tip in Dudley after the “tremendous success” of the first one.
The booking system for the facility at Lister Road on November 19 is now live.
The scheme has been extended to allow mattresses and furniture following the success of the launch earlier this month. More than 40 extra slots have been added for people to use as well.
But council bosses have asked people to make sure they cancel their booking if they no longer need it on the day, after more than 70 people failed to show for their appointment on the first session.
Councillor Shaz Saleem, cabinet member for highways and public realm, said:
The first pop-up was a tremendous success with more than 200 people coming through the gates to dispose of their household waste. We extended the next one to take more items, after listening to local people about how we could improve. We had a few issues with people not turning up which is very unfair to those people who really need an appointment. I’d simply ask people that if they no longer need their slot, just cancel it so that we can get the most out of this fantastic facility.
The pop-up service will run on the third Saturday of every month from 8am to 3.30pm.
Visitors need to book their trip in advance using the nationally recognised booking system www.dudley.gov.uk/residents/bins-and-recycling/household-waste-recycling-centre
Items that can be dropped off at the pop-up site include green waste, wood, scrap metal, small electrical items, residual waste, bricks, rubble, plasterboard, household waste, general recycling and now mattresses and furniture.
Oils and hazardous waste will not be accepted.
