We call on Birmingham City Council to trial food waste collections

Your local Liberal Democrats are calling for a trial of food waste collection in Birmingham.

A recent Council report found that 48% of all Birmingham's general waste was food waste. There is no reason Labour couldn't have already introduced food waste collections saving money and helping the environment, it shows their lack of ambition.

Food waste collections will save money and help the environment. Latest figures show the UK is throwing away £13 billion worth of food a year, much of which could be collected and used to produce energy or fertilisers.

Ideally less food would be wasted, but that which is thrown away could be useful. The Liberal Democrats are calling on the Council to trial food waste collections.

Thank you for your interest but we are no longer running this campaign.
