Household waste recycling centre - Tip

Residents of Dudley Borough can dispose of their household waste at the household waste recycling centre (the tip) in Stourbridge.

The Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) booking system for Birmingham Street in Stourbridge has being upgraded & replaced by a real time solution to allow same day access for residents. Anyone arriving at the centre without a booking will be turned away with no exceptions.

Bookings are still be needed for entry onto site, to reduce queues, reduce the risk of COVID infections by distancing and to allow the continual flow of traffic through the facility. Currently over 171,000 bookings have been made since the site reopened on May 11th 2020.

Since keeping the appointment scheme, traffic management around the area has improved, so residents have benefitted from no queues (or at most a couple of minutes), flexibility of access for E-permit holders throughout the week, prevented untaxed vehicles attending site, same day booking and attendance. The Council have also been able to monitor when to increase slots at peak times. You must book to enter site, but remember to cancel when you can’t attend, to allow someone else that availability.

The booking system allows:

  • Quicker & simpler booking form
  • Bookings to be available on the same day
  • Cancellations to become available instantaneously for rebooking
  • Edit bookings for car changes
  • Incorporation of a permit system for vans, pickups and cars with trailers
  • Flexibility for some permitted vehicles to access the site other than Wednesday
  • Up to 650 bookings available daily
  • Confirmation email with cancellation & calendar function
  • Reminder email before appointment
  • Permits issued before 6th of October 2021 will be cancelled, and 12 new Permits will be issued on booking
  • Access for Hired Vans
  • No restriction on number of bookings per week

If you are unable to attend your appointment

The email confirmation, now includes the ability to cancel the booking online. Bookings can be cancelled at any time and the slot instantly becomes available for another residents use. Please check spam or junk folders for this email.

Trial Pop-up site at Lister Road, Dudley

A trial small HWRC has been confirmed for the 22nd October 2022 from 08:00 - 15:30. Only cars can attend and bookings are only available through Dudley Council Plus or the above booking system. This is to assist residents in the north of the borough to dispose of unwanted items.

Conditions of Use

A limited number of cars will be allowed on site per hour. Ideally, only one person should attend per vehicle, but two people are permitted if required for unloading due to weight or amount. 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 is operating well and running to schedule – you may be asked to wait until your allotted time.

Visitors should adhere to the following:

  • Separate waste before journeying to the site
  • Please dispose of your rubbish as quickly and efficiently as possible
  • No children or pets on site
  • Do not socialise with other site users
  • Be respectful of site staff and other visitors #bekind

For visitors safety, we also advise the following:

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

You can still contact Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345 if you have a query regarding your booking or if you wish to cancel your appointment.
