Harborne recycling box collection date set

By on 18/06/2013 in News

A collection of unwanted recycling boxes and old council-issued bins has been organised for households in Harborne on Saturday 6 July.

It will follow the start of the wheelie bin pilot project in the ward next week - through which more than 7,000 households are receiving a wheelie bin for their recycling, replacing the old system of blue and green boxes.

Residents can keep the boxes or old bins for other uses if they wish, or take them to the local Household Recycling Centre. Any residents wishing to take advantage of the collection should leave them out at the front of their property before 6am on Saturday 6 July for collection. All of the old boxes and bins will be recycled.

A similar collection has been organised for the other pilot ward of Brandwood, set to take place this Saturday (June 22).

    So the new bins have just arrived – and they look dreadful crammed onto the tiny amount of space people have in front of their terrace houses. Our streets of Birmingham terraces have real regional character but now they’ve been defaced and look like an inner city slum. Why park a whole load of expensive plastic on everyone’s front yard? The Council have refused to listen to anyone living in their city – let’s hope everyone starts to speak up – loudly!
