Cllr James McKay, Cabinet Member for a Green, Safe and Smart City said: “The plans to introduce wheelie bins are coming along well, and they’ll give Birmingham cleaner streets and a waste collection service we can afford. This series of events is a great way for people to learn more about the improvements to the way in which we collect their waste.
“The feedback so far has been encouraging, so this offers everyone in Brandwood a chance to see the bins for themselves and ask any questions that they may have.
“We know that refuse collection is one of the most important universal services that we provide, so we are keen to ensure we keep residents updated on every step we take to modernise our refuse collection services, and make them affordable going forward.”
