White goods collections returning to borough
Dudley Council is reinstating the collection of white goods from borough households, following a suspension of the service due to the coronavirus.
Residents will be able access the chargeable service for the collection of cookers, washers, tumble dryers, fridges, freezers, microwaves, televisions, satellite receivers and DVD and video recorders from next week.
The council will collect the items on Wednesdays and Fridays, with the day depending on where people live in the borough.
Anyone wishing to access the service needs to book and pay in advance. Small items such as microwaves are collected for £13.41, larger collections such as washing machines and fridges cost £27.13.
Residents are being informed that collections must take place from their kerbside, refuse workers are unable to collect from inside the home.
Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environment, highways and street services, said:
Residents have told us that they have missed their white goods collection service and we are pleased to be in a position to reinstate it.
We would ask residents to not place goods out on the kerbside until the booked day of their collection and to respect social distancing when the collection is made.
As well as offering this affordable service, we also offer other bulky waste collections at a very reasonable cost.
