WASTE COLLECTION IN OSCOTT TO REMAIN WEEKLY
During question time at this weeks full Birmingham City Council meeting the Cabinet Member responsible for Waste Management admitted there had been some unacceptable delays in residents having their waste collected. A combination of early bad weather, snow, ice and high winds along with the Holiday period have not helped.
She did however in the strongest terms allowed condemn some of those responsible for what she considers completely and deliberately miss leading statements and leaflets stating Birmingham was heading for a 2 weekly household waste collection service.
"Birmingham will retain its weekly waste collection service"
There is to be a reviews of the things which went wrong and lets all hope everyone pulls together and the issues are sorted out.
Councillor Barbara Dring and I will continue to monitor the situation and do what we can to help any delays is Wheelie bin waste collections in Oscott.
We will also continue to request the Government treat Birmingham fairly and reduce or even return some of the huge amount of funding cuts they have made to our cities budgets,
