UPDATE 3rd Jan 2016: This mountain of refuse was cleared on Tuesday 29th December. And again later in the week. Sadly, today, readers report the mountain is back yet again.
Cllrs Brett O’Reilly and Jacqui Kennedy have been informed about this so hopefully it will be moved. Again.
Please be aware that BCC will be issuing Fixed Penalty Notices if they identify anyone as dumping refuse here
Residents living close by a recycling point in West Heath have been shocked by the amounts of rubbish left beside the bins.
Black bags have been piled high at the recycling point at West Heath island.
Northfield Councillor Brett O’Reilly has requested that the mountain of refuse be removed as a matter of urgency. He said: “I would like to thank B31 Voices and local residents that have brought this to my attention.
“I accept that there will have been a missed collection due to the bank holidays, however the amount of waste tipped is clearly causing a health hazard, and Birmingham City Council’s first duty must always be to protect it citizens, and so this waste must be removed as soon as possible.”
Residents are reminded that extra Christmas rubbish will be collected by refuse trucks if left out with wheelie bins until January 8th. Household rubbish should be secured in black bags. Cardboard can be flattened and bundled together with string.
Alternatively, extra rubbish can be taken to Lifford Lane recycling centre in Kings Norton.
Please dispose of your rubbish responsibly!
