Farm CompostHouseholders are now being leafleted by the City Council about how wheeled bins will roll out across Sparkbrook ward and adjoing wards in Autumn 2014. The black bin for your general rubbish will be medium-sized, holding 180 ltres, but big families will be able to request a larger bin. The recycling bin will be larger at 240 litrs, and experience in Ladywood has been that amounts separated for recycling went up a lot, less going to rubbish. The recycling bin will have a tray on the top for waste paper and the team will take extra, if it is in a cardboard box. Free garden waste collection has ended, so the options are to pay £35 a year for a bin collected fortnightly, or take to the council tip, or best of all to compost it yourself and reuse it in the garden, with low cost compost bins and water butts available here
