Residents in Birmingham are being reminded of this year’s Christmas waste collection arrangements with one month until festivities begin.
As is normally the case, the council’s crews, who work on all other Bank Holidays, will not operate on Christmas Day, Boxing Day (or any Bank Holidays staged when either of those two days are at the weekend).
This year that means there will be no collections of refuse or recycling of Friday 25th December and Monday 28th December.
Anyone due collections of general household waste on those two days are scheduled to next have a collection on Friday 1st January or Monday 4th January.
Anyone due recycling collections on Friday 25th December and Monday 28th December are therefore scheduled to next have a collection on Friday 8th January or Monday 11th January.
All other collections remain unchanged.
It is recognised during the festive period that many households produce more waste. For those with wheelie bins, reasonable amounts of household waste will be collected if presented in bags at the side of the bins.
Excess paper and card recycling will be collected if bundled securely with string and presented alongside the recycling bin.
Residents’ support in helping to keep the streets of Birmingham litter and rubbish free over the busy holiday period is greatly appreciated.
Please note: The city’s five Household Recycling Centres will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day (Friday 25th December and Saturday 26th December) – but will be open on all other days. For more details visit: www.birmingham.gov.uk/tips
