Extra green waste collections available

Posted on:

Borough residents can enjoy two additional green waste collections during November and December, thanks to an expansion of the service.

By paying a small fee of just £15, households can have the extra weeks added onto the end of their normal fortnightly collections.  These two additional collections will take place on the usual collection day, the first a fortnight after their last scheduled collection and the final one a fortnight later.  

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for public realm, said:

I am excited to offer this extension as our garden waste collection is very popular with residents and is ideal for anyone getting their garden ready for next year.
For only £15 residents will be able to dispose of additional garden waste quickly and efficiently, including grass cuttings, hedge clippings, annual weeds, leaves, small branches and small prunings.

Anyone who currently has an additional garden bin can also arrange a further collection by paying just £5 (£20 in total which includes the first bin).

People need to book at least two full working days prior to their standard collection date, for example a collection for the Friday must be booked on the Tuesday before.

Slots can be booked online at

or by calling Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345.

Any waste left at the side of bins ready for collection cannot be taken by crews, it is important residents dispose of all waste correctly.

Second household garden bin collections run from early spring until autumn, for an additional cost. To find out more visit the council website.
