Green Recycling Chargeable Collection Service
|Green Recycling Wheelie Bins ordered before 31st January 2014 – Important update
The vast majority of customers who ordered their green recycling wheelie bins before the end of January have already had them delivered. Unfortunately, a small number of customers are still waiting for their bins and we apologise for the inconvenience that this has caused to those customers.
These bins will be delivered as soon as we possibly can. Customers will still get the full 20 collections as we will extend the collection season to make up the difference. Again, our sincere apologies to customers affected but please be assured that the delivery team are focussing on doing all that they can to ensure that any customer identified that purchased a bin before the 31st January will have their bin as soon as possible.

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 green recycling chargeable 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.
The annual fee for the green recycling collection service is £35.00.
You can have more than one green recycling wheelie bin if you wish but you must have enough space on your property to store it and will have to pay for each additional wheelie bin.
If you request and pay for the green recycling chargeable collection service before 31 January 2014 you will be entitled to receive 20 fortnightly collections.
If you purchase the service after it has commenced in February you will be entitled to the number of collections that are remaining from the point at which you receive your wheelie bin to when the service comes to an end in November 2014.
If you subscribe to this service after 31 July 2014 the fee is £17.50 and you will be eligible to receive the number of collections remaining from the point at which you receive your wheelie bin to when the service ends in November 2014.
If you purchase this service online using the form on this page you will be entitled to a £2.00 discount on the prices quoted above.
The green recycling chargeable collection service runs from the end of February through to the end of November each year. No service is available for a 12 week period each year over the winter months.
