SOLIHULL residents wanting to dump items at Bickenhill tip must now book ahead.

From Monday 21 September residents will need a pre-booked appointment to use the site, Solihull Council has said.

Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Highways, Coun Ken Hawkins, said: “As we promised last month, the booking system for the tip is now live. Social distancing will be with us for a long time to come so the new system will help us to combat the queues that have resulted from this.

“Please make sure you read the Visit the Recycling Centre page on the Council website before booking. This explains exactly what information you will need to hand when you book a slot. If you don’t have access to the internet you can book by calling Solihull Connect on 0121 704 8000.

“We would still encourage residents to explore all other options – such as donations of useable items to charity shops or booking bulky waste collection “

Bookings can be made here.
