Many properties have black bag rubbish collections in Lozells rather than wheelie bins as they were rejected for wheelie bins when the changeover happened a few years back. Birmingham City Council felt that the properties were not suitable due to no front garden for storage of the wheelie bins.

In recent months, many residents have contacted the Councillor for Lozells, Waseem Zaffar, to ask for this decision to be reviewed.

Waseem is keen to understand if you, as residents with black bag collections, would prefer to continue as black bag collections or would support a change to wheelie bins even though they may have to be stored at the front of your house.

Thank you for completing this short survey. For further information on this or any other local matters, please contact Councillor Waseem Zaffar – by email: or by telephone: 07790 161 889.
