Financial Cuts Could See Stourbridge Tip Close

Council bosses are looking to sell off Dudley borough’s main tip in Stourbridge and make the Leys Depot in Brierley Hill the central base for waste disposal.

They will also aim to make money out of the move, with chiefs hoping the Stourbridge site can be sold to developers. Neighbouring land has already been developed for a Premier Inn hotel with fast food chains also moving in nearby.

Bosses say the Leys Road depot in Brierley Hill will be able to take more vehicles and is better equipped to handle recycling, with drivers often left queuing to get into the tip on Birmingham Street.

Other facilities are available near Coseley and Oldbury, however those sites are run by Wolverhampton and SandwellCouncils respectively. Dudley Council’s environment boss Councillor Hilary Bills said: 

"At that site people won’t have to be queuing up to go in, it will make it better for traffic flow."
