Pop-up tip popular with more than 100 tonnes of waste in two months

Councillor Damien Corfield applauded the fantastic response

Around 107 tonnes of waste has been disposed of at the facility on Lister Road since it switched to opening twice a month at the start of April.

This total includes 31.5 tonnes of wood, 20.6 tonnes of bricks and rubble, and 12.1 tonnes of mattresses and other furniture.

Nearly 2,000 bookings have been made at the site since April, with 63% reserved by residents from the north of Dudley borough. The ward with the most users of the pop-up tip in this period is St Thomas’s, where 486 spots were booked over the most recent five dates. Councillor Damian Corfield, cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said:

"We’ve had a fantastic response to the pop-up tip from residents since we introduced an extra date each month. More than 400 bookings have been made for each of the last five dates since the start of April.

"With this high demand for the site, it’s important that people who have booked appointments but no longer need them spare a minute to cancel their bookings online. This improves capacity and reduces wait times for other tip users."

Councillor Dr Rob Clinton, cabinet member for climate change, added: "Recycling as much waste as we can at the pop-up tip helps us to get closer to our overall goal of reaching Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions in Dudley.

"I hope residents will continue to use this valuable facility and keep on doing their part to make our borough cleaner and greener."

The pop-up tip’s next opening date is Saturday 17th June. Slots must be booked in advance using the online booking system.

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

Tyres, oils, liquids, car batteries, gas cylinders and hazardous waste cannot be accepted. No vans or cars with trailers are permitted at the site.
