HOUSEHOLD waste and recycling collection dates over the festive period will be announced via flyers delivered to homes around the borough.

Collections may take place earlier over Christmas, and waste and recycling should be placed outside for collection by 6.15am.

Altered dates can also be found on the Dudley Council website and by contacting Dudley Council Plus.

The household waste sites at Stourbridge and Coseley will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day, but will be open as normal over the Christmas period.
