Sedgley pop-up tip site enjoys busy opening day

Thirteen tonnes of waste were collected at Sedgley’s first pop-up tip as Dudley borough residents kicked off their spring cleaning.

The facility opened for the first time on Saturday 17 February with all 180 slots booked out between 8am and 3.30pm.

Around 4.5 tonnes of wood, 2.5 tonnes of rubble, 2 tonnes of household waste, and 1.5 tonnes of other recyclable material like white goods and mattresses were dropped off at the site.

It was the first date in a trial run of pop-up tips at Dudley Council’s street scene depot on The Northway. If the trial is successful, the Sedgley site could host one of the two pop-up tips held each month in the borough on a permanent basis. Councillor Damian Corfield, cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said:

“We’re constantly looking at ways to improve our waste and recycling service and make it easier for people in all areas of the borough to access the facilities.

“Following the recent success of the pop-up tips in Dudley and Sedgley, we’re pleased to be offering these dates for people to use the sites again in March and April.

“With the last date in Sedgley being fully booked, it’s important that people who have reserved slots but no longer need them spare a minute to cancel their bookings online. This improves capacity and reduces wait times for other tip users.”

Residents who are planning a clear-out in the next couple of months have several options for disposing their waste at sites in the north and south of the borough.

The pop-up tips will return to Lister Road in Dudley on 2 March and 6 April and The Northway in Sedgley on 16 March and 20 April.

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

Hazardous waste such as gas cylinders, oils and paints, batteries, and car tyres will not be accepted.

The council’s household waste recycling centre on Birmingham Road in Stourbridge is also open throughout the week from 8am to 4pm. Slots must be booked in advance at all three sites.
