Update on refuse strike – Sunday 8th January

I attach a map of Moseley and Kings Heath Ward showing where black bin bags still need collecting as of 5pm this evening.

Both Councillor Ernie Hendricks and myself have spent yesterday and today driving around the Ward producing different versions of this map, so that our casual refuse workers were directed to where the rubbish needed collecting most.

The objective of the weekends work was to (a) remove all black sacks of rubbish from any roads that have not been collected since Christmas (b) remove all other black sacks of rubbish.

As you will see from the map, we failed on both counts, despite a Herculean effort.

The casual crews will continue collecting tomorrow and I’ve asked them to focus on the following roads.

Caroline Road, Augusta Road East, Edgbaston Road East, Park Road

Alcester Road (east side only) between Hillcrest Road and Queensbridge Road - there are several large piles of rubbish along here

Grange Road, Bank Street, Station Road (between Avenue Road and Highbury Road), Highbury Road (between Station Road and Grange Road)

Springfield Road (between Gaddesby Road and Addison Road), Barn Lane, Wheelers Lane

Clarence Road (between Billesley Lane and Cambridge Road
