EXTRA green waste collections can now be booked between November and March.

Residents across Dudley borough can now book six extra fortnightly collections for £30 as Dudley Council’s paid for service returns.

The extra collections will start after the usual free fortnightly collections – which run from spring to autumn – finish.

Bins will be emptied on the usual collection day, with the six extra collections taking place between November and March next year.

Councillor Damian Corfield, the council’s cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said: “Winter is just around the corner now, and we are delighted to again be able to offer residents this extended opportunity to secure six additional fortnightly collections throughout winter.

“They will suit residents who enjoy gardening throughout the year, providing them with a convenient way to dispose of their garden waste.

“As previously stated, we will continue to provide our free 32-week collection service irrespective of whether people opt in for these extra collections or not.”
