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.

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.
