Chargeable Green Recycling collection service
Winter Suspension 2013/14
Please be aware the final green recycling collections for 2013 will take place in the fortnight between 15th and 29th November depending on collection cycle and day.
Collections for the new chargeable green recycling service will start in the fortnight beginning Monday 24th February 2014.
|Please be aware you will NOT be able to opt to receive sacks as an alternative to wheelie bins. Sacks will only be provided to residents whose properties are determined during the purchase process as not suitable for a wheelie bin.|
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.
The annual fee for the green recycling collection service is £35.00. If you request and pay for the chargeable green recycling collection service before the service commences 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.
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.
