Tip Opening Hours to Be Extended
City of Wolverhampton Council is to extend the opening hours of its two tips for the remainder of the summer. The household waste and recycling centres at Shaw Road and Anchor Lane will each open until 7pm one day each week. They will also open earlier at weekends – at 8am instead of 10am on Saturdays and Sundays.
The decision, which will take effect from next week, is the result of customer feedback.
Shaw Road will open until 7pm on Wednesday nights and Anchor Lane will open until 7pm on Thursday nights. The later openings will continue until October 4 when the evenings start to get darker.
The earlier weekend openings will continue until further notice.
Cllr Steve Evans, cabinet member for city environment, said: “We know that customers have been frustrated by longer than normal queues at our two tips. People understand that we are having to manage huge cuts from Central Government and cannot carry on offering the services we did before, however we’ve listened to customer concerns about the tip hours and have taken the decision to open earlier at weekends and open each site until 7pm one day a week.
“We very much hope that giving people this increased flexibility will alleviate some of the queuing issues.”
