Check your collection day
Waste dispute resolution
Heads of terms between Birmingham City Council and the unions Unite and Unison that will bring an end to the dispute within the city’s waste management service were approved by the council’s Cabinet today (March 15). Read more here.
This means that weekly household waste, and fortnightly recycling collections will recommence on Monday 18 March.
Please present your household waste and recycling before 5:30am on your collection day, or no earlier than 3:30pm the day before.
Continue to separate your waste: household rubbish in the grey lid bin and recycling in the blue lid bin. Check what goes in your bins.
A reasonable amount of side waste (2-3 sacks) will be taken if presented alongside your bins.
