This Labour Council scheme will cost £60 million and bring few benefits to the area say your Conservative councillors.
The delivery of wheelie bins to properties in Cotteridge, Bournville and Stirchley will take place over the next couple of months, with the actual collection service beginning in the new year.
The scheme brought in by the Labour Council to replace black bags and waste boxes with wheelie bins has cost the council £60 million and is just typical of Labour extravagance.
Your Bournville Conservative councillors have consistently opposed the introduction of wheelie bins for two very good reasons.
- There are far more important things this city could spend £60 million on. Our libraries are under threat and the Labour council has already announced that Tiverton Road swimming pool is to close. The Labour Council has cut the street cleaning service leading to our roads and pavements beginning to suffer from litter and graffiti.
- With each household having two wheelie bins it will be very difficult for some households to find the space to store them. Many of these wheelie bins, instead, will be left out on the street or stored in the front garden in full view, particularly in those roads dominated by terrace housing. We fear that parts of Stirchley, Cotteridge and Bournville will be seriously disfigured by the proliferation of wheelie bins in full public view.

Your local Conservative councillors are once again urging the Co-op Superstore in Stirchley to clean up the huge, ugly graffiti that defaces the side of their building.
The graffiti has been growing over the last few years, spreading out along the length of the side wall facing the FarmFoods carpark. Passers by, either on foot or on the bus, must be shocked to see such a large amount of graffiti being tolerated on a supermarket wall. No other supermarket would tolerate this..
Your local Conservative councillors consider this graffiti a shocking eyesore and its non removal an insult to Stirchley Village. .
Come on Co-op, clean up your act.
