Dudley pop-up tip to return this month

The pop-up tip in Dudley will return for its first date of 2023 on Saturday 21 January.

Residents planning a New Year clear-out will be able to visit the site on the car park opposite the Lister Road depot.

More than 500 people have used the waste disposal facility since it was introduced in October, including over 400 residents from the north of the borough.

During the pop-up tip’s three dates in 2022, 21.2 tonnes of waste was recycled, including 9.6 tonnes of wood, 5.3 tonnes of bricks and rubble, 3.6 tonnes of furniture and mattresses, and 2.4 tonnes of scrap metal. Councillor Shaz Saleem, cabinet member for highways and public realm, said:

“We are looking forward to bringing back our pop-up tip in 2023. The response to the facility has been overwhelmingly positive with hundreds of people turning up at each date to recycle their household waste. This helps to get us closer to our overall goal of reaching Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions in Dudley.

“The pop-up tip currently operates each month but we will soon be exploring the possibility of switching to fortnightly opening dates in light of the site’s popularity with residents, especially people in the north of the borough.”

Councillor Rob Clinton, cabinet member for waste management and climate change, added:

“I’m thrilled to hear the pop-up tip is being used regularly by people from across the borough. More than 20 tonnes of waste have been recycled at the site, which will make a positive impact on the local environment.

“We hope residents will continue to use this valuable facility and carry on doing their part to make Dudley borough cleaner and greener.”

Bookings for the pop-up tip must be made in advance using the online system.

Items that can be disposed at the site include green waste, wood, scrap metal, small electrical items, residual waste, bricks, rubble, plasterboard, household waste, mattresses, furniture and general recycling.

Oils, car batteries and hazardous waste cannot be accepted.

For the rest of this month, Dudley residents can also benefit from a discount on Textek’s home collections of mattresses, bed bases, carpet, underlay, and upholstered seating like chairs and sofas.

The cost for the collection of each item will be £15 instead of the normal £18. To make use of this offer, call Textek on 01948 840251.
