Recycling in Birmingham

BBC Breakfast News have been running segments on recycling of domestic waste, and the extent to which it can reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Currently in much of Birmingham only paper is collected to recyling, other materials can be taken to recycling centres but for people without access to a car these can be difficult or impossible to use. I emailed Birmingham City Council’s enviromental section to ask if they had any plans to provide collections of recyclable domestic waste. They resonded:

Thank you for your email. We are currently running a pilot scheme to collect platic bottles, drinks cans and glass bottles in parts of Stirchley and Kings Heath. This will be extended to other areas of Birmingham over the next year or so, but details have yet to be finalised. You will be informed when this scheme is extended to your road.
