Important Information

Please ensure your waste and recycling is ready for collection by 6:15am on your collection day. Collections may be earlier or later than usual.

Your grey bin lid MUST be closed in order for us to make your collection. Please do not place any additional sacks of non recyclable waste out as these will not be collected.

If your recycling doesn't all fit in the containers provided please do not put it in black sacks as it will not be taken. If you require additional blue/green bags or an additional black box please contact Dudley Council Plus or use the form below.

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 are the main recycling sites for a large number of items including Christmas trees and unwanted electrical goods. Further information can be found here.
