Christmas waste and recycling collections 2018

Dudley borough residents are being reminded to lookout for details of this year’s Christmas waste and recycling collections.


Households will have altered collections between Saturday 22nd December 2018 and Saturday 5th January 2019 and flyers detailing the changes will soon be delivered to all borough homes.

Details of the altered collections will also be available by contacting Dudley Council Plus.

Waste and recycling should be placed outside for collection by 6:15 am and residents are advised that collections may be earlier or later than usual during the Christmas period.

Residents are asked to ensure that the grey bin lid is shut and to not put out any additional sacks of waste as these will not be collected.

Residents are also asked to ensure that any additional cardboard placed out for collection alongside recycling containers is broken down into manageable bundles.

Any additional bulky waste can be collected via the council’s chargeable bulky waste collection service.

The household waste sites, located in Stourbridge and Coseley, also recycle a large number of items including Christmas trees and unwanted electrical goods. Both sites are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. 

For more information visit or email or call 0300 555 2345.
