A calendar featuring RUBBISH DUMPS around England has become a surprise bestseller.

Kevin Beresford, 71, has already sold hundreds of the riveting rubbish tips calendars, which feature the country’s top dumps. Each month offers a photo and review of a different household tip or recycling centre, where Brits can dump their waste.

Kevin said: “I always like to focus on the mundane and we’ve all been to rubbish tips. They are just like any other building and can be good and bad. I found it amusing in doing my research that people leave reviews for rubbish dumps, just like they do when they go to a restaurant.”

Llansamlet Waste Recycling Centre in Wales, which has a shop on site selling rubbish and a rather tight entrance turn, is the focus for February. March features Slyfield Community Recycling Centre in Guildford, Surrey, which has a specialist charity “paint shop” for used paint, which raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Previously tins of water-based paint would be sent for disposal rather than recycling.

Billinghurst Recycling Centre is April’s entry, with a pile of used tyres at the entrance and different sections of drivers to dump their rubbish. A Worcestershire dump, which is tricky to find as it is tucked behind a housing estate features in May. It is a “neat and tidy tip with no huge crowds,” according to reviews.

June’s entry, Droitwich Dump in Worcestershire, is a “recommended rubbish experience” according to reviews and has a “superb scenic approach.” Busy Bilford Road Tip in Worcester, where some reviews say it takes 30 minutes just to move through the entrance, features in July. It has a large section for chemicals, batteries and fluorescent tubes.

Malvern Recycling Centre in Gloucester Close is August’s chosen dump, with a section for plastic bottles and food and drink cans. Hanford Incinerator in Stoke is December’s tip. The plant burns 173,000 tons of rubbish from Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire each year, producing electricity for the national grid and saving the city council from having to pay landfill fees and taxes. But council officials say the facility is now reaching the end of its useful economic life and will soon be replaced.

Kevin has become well known for his unusual calendars and his other publications over the years have included roundabouts, road kill, prisons and car parks. The Rubbish Dumps of England Calendar 2024 costs £12.50 and can be bought from
