Christmas recycling at household waste and recycling centre
Dudley borough residents are being reminded that the Household Waste Recycling Centre is accepting waste and recycling over the Christmas period.
The Birmingham Street site in Stourbridge will be open every day (8am until 4pm) apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – but only for residents who have pre-booked an appointment.
Anyone who turns up without an appointment slot will be turned away, without exception.
People can take a large number of items to the centre for recycling including Christmas trees, packaging and unwanted electrical goods.
Residents can recycle cardboard and non foil wrapping paper through the kerbside collection scheme. Larger quantities of cardboard can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling site for disposal.
People are also reminded that the site operates a permit scheme for those accessing the site on a Wednesday, with a van or trailer, including charity organisations.
Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for public realm, said:
The Household Waste Recycling Centre, based in Stourbridge, is the ideal place to dispose of any excess waste created over the Christmas and New Year period, but it is important residents have an appointment before attending, or they will be turned away.
I would like to thank all our residents for continuing to follow government guidelines in the continued fight against coronavirus. During this difficult time, it is important that we all look after our environment and dispose of waste responsibly. We should take pride in our borough as we move into 2021.
We are operating the online booking system to ensure that everyone follows social distancing guidelines, and it is really easy to arrange an appointment – simply visit www.dudley.gov.uk and go to the household waste recycling page, then follow the links to fill out the form.
Please help us to minimise traffic congestion by sorting your recycling and general waste prior to visiting the site.
Households will have altered waste collections between 19 December and 2 January and flyers detailing the changes are being delivered to all borough homes.
