Birmingham City Council

Refuse and Recycling Collections

We have improved how we collect rubbish and recycling across the city. This has involved some changes to the day and time on which rubbish and recycling collections take place. You can check your collection day by visiting My Local Information.

Collection Times

We have extended the times that collection crews operate. Street collections will take place at any time between 6am and 3.30pm.

What Do I Need to Do?

Please continue to put your sacks and boxes at the edge of your property on the correct day of collection before 6am.

If You Wish To Report a Missed Collection
