Residents of Dudley Borough can dispose of their household waste at the household waste recycling centre (the tip) in Stourbridge.
Household waste recycling centre: response to Covid 19
On Monday 11 May, the household waste recycling centre in Stourbridge reopened, offering a booking only system – in response to Covid 19 and social distancing restrictions.
Do not leave home and visit the tip if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of Coronavirus.
Following government guidance, householders should only use this service if their waste cannot be stored safely at home and no alternative disposal options are available.
We are experiencing extremely high demand for this facility and we ask you to be patient as in the short term. We are offering a limited capacity per hour, which will be reviewed in the coming weeks. Please note, anyone who arrives at the site without a slot will be turned away.
In the short terms, a limited number of cars will be allowed on site per hour, with soul occupancy (with the exception of when two people are required to unload) and site operatives are unable to assist with unloading. One visit per Dudley borough household (subject to availability) per week.
Visitors should adhere to the following:
- Ask yourself, is this an essential journey, or can waste be stored safely at home for the time being?
- Separate waste before journeying to the site
- Stay at least 2 metres apart
- No children or pets on site
- Do not socialise with other site users
- Be respectful of site staff and other visitors #bekind
- When you have finished disposing of your waste go straight home
For visitors safety, we also advise the following:
- Do not touch your face
- Use gloves
- Wash your hands when you get home
Anyone arriving at the centre without a booking will be turned away, with no exceptions.
People should call Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345 to book their appointments. Bookings are taken for the following week.
When you ring you will only be able to book one slot per household per week (seven day period). You will not be able to book a slot for the following week at the same time - you have to wait another seven days before ringing. This arrangement is under constant review.
Please note: the permit scheme is temporarily suspended.
