Evidence to Council Inquiry into Green Waste Collection Service.


Birmingham City Council have invited me to submit my thoughts to the Connectivity & Sustainability Overview and Scrutiny Committee’s Inquiry into the Green Waste Collection Service.

I have been raising concerns about the changes to the green waste collection service with the City Council since early this year.

I have therefore been grateful for the opportunity to submit my comments about the real problems which local people have experienced with the introduction of charges for green waste, and the need for the City Council to change course, to the Inquiry.

You can read my submission here.
