Recycling scheme is launched; PERRY BARR.

PERRY Barr has been picked to be a pilot area for a new recycling scheme in Birmingham.

Residents will now get blue boxes for paper, green for glass and plastics and green bags for garden waste.

They will be collected on their normal day of delivery which is usually Wednesdays in Perry Barr. Handsworth Wood councillor Karen Hamilton is delighted the council is aiming to improve the amount of household waste being recycled. "This is great news," she said. "This has been a priority for me since being elected and I know will be well-supported by local residents. This is great news."

Birmingham City Council lags behind neighbouring councils like Lichfield District when it comes to the percentage of household rubbish being recycled.

The new scheme is an extension of the 'white box for paper' recycling scheme which is operating across the city.
