Household Recycling Centres (tips) and recycling banks
Household Recycling Centres (tips) are provided by Worcestershire County Council for residents of the two counties to recycle and dispose of their household waste.
See listings on Worcestershire County Council website for information on sites including locations, opening times, restrictions and online booking of appointments for certain sites.
Household recycling centres do not accept trade or business waste, we offer competitively priced business waste and recycling contracts.
Some materials, such as textiles, shoes and foil can only be recycled through public recycling banks and not through the kerbside service.

Batteries and small electrical items
Please do not put batteries of any size or small electrical items like kettles or toasters in your black or green bin. We will not empty it. Batteries can be very dangerous and even cause fires in bin lorries or at our recycling sorting site.
Take Charge raises awareness of the damage batteries can cause, if disposed of incorrectly.
Many electrical retailers, supermarkets and household recycling centres accept batteries that are no longer working or of use.
E-cigarettes & vapes
Please remove the battery and recycle it separately at a battery recycling point (available in many shops or at household recycling centres)
The rest of the e-cigarette/vape can be recycled in the small electrical appliances container at either Kidderminster or Stourport household recycling centres.
Problems with recycling sites
We aim to keep the recycling banks looking as clean and tidy as possible by emptying them regularly and tidying around them. However, if you should spot any problems please contact us. Please be aware that leaving items next to a bank is classed as flytipping, for which you may be fined.
