Council pay-to-collect green waste system starts in Kings Heath

more Kings Heath local news

Just as green-fingered residents are wondering if winter is finally over and thinking of returning to their gardens, Birmingham City Council's new green waste collection system gets underway in Kings Heath.

The chargeable service will run for a 40-week growing season – giving householders an easy and convenient way of disposing of the grass cuttings and other garden clippings, says the council.

Green waste collections used to be free and take place fortnightly, alternating with the paper, plastic and glass recycling collections.

The council says it has introduced the chargeable service in response to central government funding cuts. Birmingham has to provide weekly household waste collection, but is not legally required to collect green waste.

Collections are now made on a fortnightly basis for an annual £35 fee. In a reminder issued today, the council says it’s still not too late to sign up.

To find out more visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/greenrecycling  Another alternative option is to purchase a composter for as little as £16.98 (plus £5.49 delivery) via the council’s website. For more details visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/composting

To assist residents, a series of roadshow events is being staged across Birmingham to offer citizens advice and tips on how compost their garden waste. Anyone interested in finding out more about the composting options available to them can visit Kings Heath Library on Friday (21 Feb) between 10am and 3pm.
