Walsall Council launches longer tip opening hours trial

From Monday 1 April, both of the ‘tips’ – Household Waste Recycling Centres - in Walsall will be open every day of the week and each site will also be open late one night per week.

The trial, set to run until 30 June, is the last in a series of three trials being implemented by Walsall Council’s Cabinet to try to drive down the blight of fly-tipping in the borough.

Each ‘tip’ will be open from 8am to 6pm six days a week and open from 10am to 8pm on Tuesdays at Merchants Way and Thursdays at the Fryers Road site.
