Residents in Dudley borough can benefit from a free of charge white goods collection service.
The service is offered by Brierley Hill based Mason Metals, who collect items such as cookers, washing machines and dishwashers from homes across the borough for recycling.
Items that are unsuitable for reuse or recycling can be collected through Dudley Council’s bulky waste collection service, which has seen a recent reduction in charges. The collection charge for small items has now been reduced to £15, medium sized items are now £25 and large items are £40.
Recycling and waste can also be taken to the council’s household waste and recycling centre in Stourbridge at no cost.
Councillor Tracy Wood, cabinet member for environment and culture, said:
“Dudley Council is committed to a clean and greener borough and we work with a number of local business and charities to promote reuse and recycling initiatives such as the one operated by Mason Metals.
“We also offer a fantastic bulky waste collection service at very reasonable rates and I would encourage anyone considering a spring clean to contact us for more information.”
Owner of Mason Metals Andrew Jones said:
“Dudley Council wants to encourage residents to recycle as much of their waste as possible and we’re delighted that they recognise the work that we do.
“As our service is free of charge and collects from households, it is a safe and convenient way for people who live in the borough to recycle more for Dudley.“
