Bin strike suspended: What you need to know

Birmingham bin workers started industrial action in June Credit: PA/ ITV News

Birmingham's bin strike has been suspended after the High Court in London ruled in favour of bin workers fighting to save their jobs. Rubbish has been piling up in the city since staff took industrial action in June, after 106 were sent redundancy notices from Birmingham City Council.

The number of bin collections will now be stepped up and crews will be working until 10pm each day to help clear the backlog. A new schedule for bin collections will be announced tomorrow (22 September).

Collections for today and tomorrow will take place in:

  • Acocks Green
  • Bartley Green
  • Hall Green
  • King Norton
  • Kingstanding
  • Ladywood
  • Moseley/Kings Heath
  • Northfield
  • Quinton
  • Soho
  • Springfield
  • Sutton Four Oaks
  • Sutton Trinity
  • Tyburn

If you live in one of these wards and did not receive a collection by 10pm Friday 22 September, you can report it here.

Birmingham City Council is advising residents to continue to separate their household rubbish and leave garden waste out on the scheduled collection day.

You can dispose of your rubbish and recycling at Birmingham's household reycling centres. Perry Barr, Tyseley and Lifford have extended opening hours, 7am to 9pm until further notice.
