Three wheelie bins per household for Birmingham

Three wheelie bins per household for Birmingham

The new Labour administration have been very quiet on the details of their proposed wheelie bin scheme for Birmingham – at yesterdays Cabinet these details were only discussed in the private non-public section.

However, I’ve managed to get details of what is being proposed. In short, all households will have three wheelie bins

      Recycling a 240 litre wheeled bin with a separate insert box for paper/card - fortnightly collection service
      Domestic waste 140 - 240 litre bin depending on household size - weekly collection service
      Green waste 240 litre wheeled bin - fortnightly collection

The Labour administration is proposing that EVERY household will have these and are bidding for £24million from the government for this scheme. Sack collections would stop.

The Labour administration has abandoned the previous Conservative-Liberal Democrat administrations plans for kerbside food recycling, which have significantly raised the city recycling level.
