July 13th - This is just a wee reminder about how poor rubbish services are for some folk. The people here, between Four Oaks and Little Aston, live in one of the poshest, most exclusive areas of Birmingham. Sadly, refuse services in the Second City are still third rate; no wheelie bins here. For whatever reason, these bags of waste - recycling and general trash - have been missed and will lie here for another week.
Next time you hear someone grumbling about Walsall or Lichfield’s bin service, reflect on this.
