From February 2014 we will no longer provide a free green recycling collection service due to the need for the Council to make significant financial savings and to save money on waste services.
The new chargeable green recycling collection service is only available if you live in Birmingham, i.e. you pay your council tax to us.
If you do not live in Birmingham you should contact your own local authority.
