Christmas recycling at Dudley Council site
Residents are reminded that the tip in Stourbridge will be accepting rubbish and recycling over the Christmas period.
The Household Waste Recycling Centre in Birmingham Street will be open every day apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
People can take items including Christmas trees, packaging and unwanted electrical goods to the centre for recycling.
Cardboard and non-foil wrapping paper can go in blue recycling bags to be collected at the kerbside. But larger quantities of cardboard can be taken to the tip for disposal.
People are also reminded that the site operates a permit scheme for those accessing the site with a van or trailer, including charity organisations.
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for environmental services, said:
The tip in Stourbridge is the ideal place to dispose of any excess waste created over the Christmas and New Year period.
The centre will be open as normal on most days from 8am to 4pm, just closing on the main holiday days of Christmas, Boxing and New Year’s Day.”
Households will have altered waste collections between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and flyers detailing the changes are being delivered to all borough homes.
