  • All rubbish must be properly sealed in plastic bags, preferably bin liners
  • Please do not leave waste outside your front door during the day or overnight
  • Rubbish must not be left in communal areas.
  • Items such as cardboard boxes need to be collapsed


Arranging a Bulky Waste collection

If you wish to dispose of bulky waste items such as furniture, white goods and garden waste, you must organise this. Birmingham City Council will collect bulky waste for a fee of £23 per six items.

When you arrange a collection, you will be asked to make sure the items are presented properly, so please make sure that:

  • Small articles are put in a sealed bag, otherwise they may get left behind
  • Sofas, beds and carpets are covered
  • Branches and wood are tied and there are no sharp items, ie, nails, remaining
  • Glass items are taped (including TV screens)
  • The items you would want taken are clearly separated from any other items on your property
