DUDLEY Council has produced a one-stop check list of when council services are running over the Christmas period.

Available to view online at www.dudley.gov.uk/xmasopeningtimes - it includes information on housing, bin collections, how to reach services in an emergency and more.

Household waste and recycling collection dates have been altered between December 21 and January 4, with flyers detailing the changes set to be delivered to all homes in the borough in the run-up to Christmas.

Alan Lunt, deputy chief executive at Dudley Council, said: "Many of our council services will continue to operate over the festive period.

"We want to remind residents, particularly those who are elderly and vulnerable that we are still here for them, especially those emergency frontline services that people depend on.

"Other services may be affected with alternative or reduced opening hours. We want to encourage people to check before travelling to libraries, leisure centres and other popular activities.

"We have produced a list for people check, which includes those all-important emergency contact details."

Opening hours for council services such as Dudley Council Plus, the household waste recycling centre, housing services, libraries, leisure centres and more can be viewed online on the above web link.
