Helping Birmingham to recycle more of the right things, in the right way.
Our Sort it. Bring it. Save it! campaign focuses on helping you to recycle the right things in the right way.
Download the leaflet below to see if you can recycle one more thing at home, or at Birmingham's Household Recycling Centres.
Bin Your Bag Habit
From January 2020 we will be asking residents bringing in black bag waste into the household recycling centres (HRCs) to sort through their waste on-site. This process will help separate recycling from residual waste so we can help Birmingham citizens recycle as much as possible in the right way.
Local residents are reminded to separate and sort their waste before visiting the HRCs to help reduce the time spent on site.
