Find a recycling centre or rubbish tip
If you have extra recycling or rubbish that won't fit in your bins, you can take it to our Household Recycling Centre ('the tip') at Shidas Lane, Oldbury, West Midlands, B69 2BP.
Sandwell residents can also dispose of the following items:
- car batteries, engine oil, household batteries and electrical items
- energy saving lightbulbs and fluorescent tubes
- rubble and soils - 8 bags or 200Kg maximum per month
- fridges, freezers and furniture
- scrap metal, timber and glass.
The centre is open every day of the year, including Bank Holidays (except for Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).

Vans, larger vehicles and trailers
Residents driving vans or towing trailers will need to make an appointment by calling 0121 511 1505 - the line is open 8am - 4pm from Monday to Friday.
You will need to call at least 24 hours in advance, as it is not possible to take a booking for the day of the call.
Please call early in the week to make a weekend appointment.
Vans and cars with trailers booked in must be on site before 7pm week days and 5pm weekends, after these times you will not be able to use the site.
Find a recycling bank
There are many recycling banks sites across Sandwell which give residents the opportunity to recycle their unwanted items using these banks or alongside their kerbside collection service. You can recycle cans, glass, paper and textiles in the banks.
