War On Litter in Birmingham Ladywood Constituency

Our city centre MP Shabana Mahmood, fed up with litter dumping, is asking for our help in fighting this problem.

Shabana has circulated the email below.

Rubbish. Litter. Dumping. Fast food wrappings. Old mattresses. Fridges, freezers, you name it, it gets left round here.

Our area – I live in this constituency too – has become a dumping ground. I don’t know about you but I’m fed up with the littering that goes on in our streets on a daily basis. When I see discarded mattresses and overflowing bins my heart sinks.

Something needs to be done.

I’ve been working with local councillors and community activists and we have been demanding that the Council hold a Litter Summit; that they get all the people responsible for keeping the area clean around the table to work out an action plan to sort this out.

The Council has now agreed to hold this summit on Thursday 15th March at 4pm at the Council House.

I want to show all those people at the summit what the people who live here have to endure on a daily basis. Please fill in my online litter survey using this link https://www.shabanamahmood.org/survey/litter-and-dumping-survey . You can also let me know on the survey if you want to attend the summit.

Thank you for your help.

Shabana Mahmood
MP for Birmingham Ladywood

    Birmingham council need to review their policy on bulk collection. Majority of people are being made miserable because of rubbish and dumping. No doubt the policy makers live in a clean area. They should seek advise from Sandwell. They don’t seem to have this problem. How long are we expected to live like pigs in this area, rolling around in mess? I would like to think of things other than rubbish, but my focus is on it as soon I drive around our local streets. I am an active residents who joins others in litter.

    Dear Michael, Very true its happening everywhere. What people need to do is take their old mattresses, Fridges, freezers, and white goods and sofas and bulk items to the recycling centres, or get the bulky waste collection arranged by the council.

    It’s definitely… NOT JUST LADYWOOD… it’s happening everywhere!!!
    It’s Birmingham Council’s policies that lead to dumping. They stopped doing bulk collections. What else can people do with it?
