Disposal of general every day rubbish

  • As a tenant you, not the landlord, are responsible for making sure all your household waste is disposed of properly and legally.
  • Everyone living in the house is responsible for the bins. This includes putting the correct waste in the bins, putting them out for collection and returning them back to your property after they have been emptied.
  • Put rubbish out after 6pm the night before collection, or by 6am on collection day. If rubbish is repeatedly left on the street, prior to due time of collection, this is called ‘advancement’. Birmingham City Council could have the right to take action against you and you potentially leading to a fine.
  • Accumulated rubbish is unsightly and attracts rats/vermin to the property. Similarly, if food spillages are left exposed, this attracts mice, ants, cockroaches and pests.

Rubbish cannot be collected if it left inside the boundary of your property e.g. in your garden. It must be placed on the boundary of the property to ensure collection.

 

Wheelie Bin Roads

Six roads in Bournbrook have been included in a wheelie bin pilot scheme. These are:
 
Dawlish (not side roads)
Dartmouth (this does not include Totnes & Newton Grove)
Exeter
Tiverton
Hubert (not side roads)
Teignmouth
 
Wheelie bins will be collected from gardens by the bin crew and replaced there.
 
All rubbish for disposal needs to be placed in the wheelie bin and not around the base, as this attracts rats/vermin to the property.  Similarly, if food spillages are left exposed, this attracts mice, ants, cockroaches and pests.
 

Non-Wheelie bin roads

All waste will need to be deposited in a black bag and placed on the edge of the property (nearest the front) on collection day. Waste can be presented after 6.00pm the day before, and before 7am on the day of collection. It is an offence to place waste for collection outside of these times, and can result in a fine.
