New waste collection calendars being issued to residents

Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environment

Dudley Council is currently delivering waste collection calendars to all borough households ahead of 2018.

Residents will see that their collection day remains the same but the calendars have been designed to remind people when to place their waste out for collection. The calendars cover collection details for grey bins (non recyclable waste), green bins (garden waste) and recycling containers.

Households are asked to ensure containers are ready for collection for 6.15am on their collection day at the edge of their property or driveway. Containers can be placed outside from 7.30pm on the night before collection day.

Residents are reminded that collection times may vary from week to week, but if items haven’t been collected by 3pm on collection day then they can report a missed collection to Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345.

People are asked to use their black box for glass bottles and jars only, blue bag for paper, card and cardboard only and green bag for plastic bottles, aerosols, food tins and cans only. Councillor Karen Shakespeare, cabinet member for environment, said:

“Each year we produce this recycling and waste collection calendar as borough residents find it really useful.  Not only does it identify when householders should place their waste out for collection, it also gives hints and tips about what and how to recycle.

“Recycling is very important for both our environment and the authority as a whole.   Each year, throughout kerbside collections, we recycle nearly 40,000 tonnes of glass, paper, card, tins, cans and aerosols and the money we collect as a consequence is put back into the authority, helping to keep our council tax low. 

“Anyone who would like to receive additional green or blue sacks or black boxes to help increase their recycling efficiency should ring Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345. They are free to borough residents.”
