The amount of waste produced in Birmingham is increasing every day. The city produces more than 5,000 tonnes of waste each week.
The amount of waste that the city produces is increasing with the population and this is a major problem for Birmingham. The system of rubbish removal in Birmingham is not enough to cope with all the rubbish that is being produced.
The current system relies on people having bins on their property, which means they have to carry their rubbish all the way to a bin and dispose of it properly at home. This causes a lot of issues because people are not taking responsibility for their rubbish and it creates a lot of pollution as well as noise pollution from the trolleys used by the council workers.
