General advice

Reasonable amounts of “side waste” will be taken over the Christmas and new year period (2-3 sacks) and anyone with extra cardboard is asked to bundle the waste with string and place next to their recycling bin when they have their next scheduled collection – but the bundle must not be any taller or wider than the bin itself.

What has the councillor in charge of the waste disposal services in Birmingham has said about the festive bin collection timetable?

Cllr John O’Shea, Cabinet Member for Street Scene and Parks, said: “We always strive to strike the right balance between providing a service and ensuring that our hardworking crews get time with their families and loved ones over Christmas and new year.

“The plan put forward, following discussion with staff and their representatives, means there are some changes to business as usual – so we would urge everyone who normally has a collection on a Monday or a Tuesday to check out what is scheduled for them.”
