We need residents to unload as quickly and efficiently as possible to help maintain schedules and reduce potential queuing times. Site operatives may assist with unloading. When you have a scheduled slot, please do not turn up early as the service runs to schedule. If you do you will be asked to wait until your allotted time.

  • Separate waste before journeying to the site

  • No children or pets on site

For visitors safety, we also advise the following:

  • Do not touch your face
  • Use gloves
  • Wash your hands when you get home

Further information


When items come to the end of their useful life, it’s important to consider the disposal options available. Most people recognise that recycling is better for the environment. However, many of us fail to consider other options which might be even better for the environment. Such as waste prevention or whether items could be reused.

In order to maximise recycling rates it is suggested that householders sort all waste into the correct containers for recycling. Pre-sorting materials before visiting the site will make visits easier and quicker. Any items suitable for reuse should be handed to a site operative.

Van and trailer permits

If you use a car towing a trailer or a commercial type vehicle to dispose of your household waste at Dudley Council’s household waste recycling centre (HWRC) you will need to apply for our van and trailer permit.

Commercial waste

We cannot accept commercial waste. To find out more about commercial waste view our commercial waste page

Height barriers

Height barriers are in operation at the site. The height barrier is set at 6ft 6ins/1.98m at the entrance to the car park. Any vehicles above 6ft 6ins will need to make an appointment, available on Wednesdays only.

Please note that the use of small trailers (maximum of 1.8m) will only be allowed at the site by prior appointment.
